This is the follow up to the morning's beginners level workshop and will walk through ways to make your own maps with OpenStreetMap data. It's targeted to people who are interested in learning how to make custom maps and learning what tools exist to make this easy, but who have no direct experience doing so.
- Create Your First TileMill Map: TileMill is an open source cartography studio. This workshop will walk through how to make and style a map with TileMill using OSM data, showing steps from inputing data, styling the map, to getting it online. Presented by Ian Villeda, 1:30 pm.
- First Steps with Quantum GIS: This session will give an introduction to the popular open source software for converting, analyzing and visualizing geographic data. Presented by Mamata Akella and Matthew Baker, 2:30 pm.
- More Mapping Techniques with OpenStreetMap: This session will walk through how to add bus routes and other transit information to OpenStreetMap to create more usable transit maps than are often available through the city's PDF, old school system. Presented by Elliot Plack, 3:30 pm.
Space is limited to 24 participants. This workshop is an auxiliary event to the State of the Map US conference taking place at the same venue over the weekend.
