On Tuesday, 13th November 2018, five people met in order to collect some data for OpenStreetMap (OSM). We used the app StreetComplete which is very easy to use. We also exchanged our experiences with OSM. It looks like that there are actually many mappers in the Salzburg area but there is almost no personal exchange. It would be great if Maptime Salzburg could serve as a platform for this in the future.
Afterwards more people were meeting in the Trumerei bar. We discussed various geo-related topics and planned our next event which will be held in the middle of December. The presenations for the next meeting will probably be git, GDAL/OGR and PostGIS. Moreover we would like to give all participants the possibility to introduce themselves. Additionally there shall be time for some very short lightning talks.
Just in time for this second meetup we finished our new logo. It shows the two skylines of Salzburg: the castle and the churches of the old town.
We are looking forward having more people on our next meeting. If you need more information join us on our mailing list or follow us on Twitter.

In the beginning of October we had the first issue of our “Maptime Salzburg” meetup. We were generously hosted by Trafficon. We had three presentations about OpenStreetMap (OSM). First Jakob gave an overview about the OSM ecosystem.
Afterwards Niko talked about data science with OSM. Sebastian finally compared the OSM street network with other map providers.
The evening ended in the Trumerei bar where the almost 20 participants had the chance to exchange experiences.
