UN Centre December 2

A big part of our strategy is outreach to data communities in Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa. We want to introduce our work in Kibera, specifically OpenStreetMap, and more generally concepts and techniques on geo data sharing.

We'd like to organize a Mapping Party at the UN Center next month. This would be a full day .. with some mapping on the Gigiri centre grounds, discussion on available data source, and brainstorming on quick-win projects that demonstrates the effectiveness of open data. There's possibilities of connecting some of the ideas into quick demonstration projects, in connection with techies from the Nairobi OpenStreetMap community, and the global community.

Bo Pedersen has offered to help organize an event for December 2. We'd like to have 15-20 people, folks working in GIS or monitoring, or just interested in OSM.
