PLEASE interrupt if you have questions!
First things first: What is Maptime all about?

Stolen from Lyzi Diamond
Maptime is popping up all over the world
There are Maptime resources all over

Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested
Maptime exists because community, inclusivity, and accessibility are important components of positive learning experiences.
