In what ways do you collect data in the field? What challenges do you face? In this workshop we’ll work through a series of small-group exercises to identify:

  • How we collect, analyze, and publish geospatial data right now
  • How we deal with data that doesn’t have a place in OSM
  • The common challenges we face in daily work
  • The kinds of training team members need
  • Ways we might improve our tools and processes

Through this workshop we’ll have new ways of looking at the problems we face when collecting data in the field, we’ll learn from the experiences of other participants, and we’ll start a plan for improving how our teams collect data.
