Free Webinar! Come learn about OpenStreetMap

In the past months, we have been excited to talk about MapQuest’s involvement with OpenStreetMap. But what exactly is this project about and how can you be apart of it you ask? This Wednesday, November 17th, at 2PM EST, Hurricane Coast will co-host a free webinar that will help new folks get started with OpenStreetMap (OSM).

The webinar is a perfect way to get your hands dirty in a hands-on style. The hour long session will cover everything from history about OSM and cool stories of how the project ‘saved lives’ to walking you through the sign-up process and showing you how to make your first edit. The discussion is hosted by Depiction, a company that offers mapping, simulation and collaboration software that helps people all over the world use information from OpenStreetMap (OSM), and other publicly available sources, to make decisions, build plans, manage their resources and much more.

To sign up for the webinar, go here and register, it’s free!
