Consuming OSM Data @ OpenData Waterloo Region

Tonight, I gave a short talk at OpenData, Waterloo Region on ‘Consuming & Presenting OSM Data‘. A discussion on how to use OSM data followed. The audience had a range of OSM experience. Some people had heard of OSM but never used it, a few people had used the data in applications or while traveling and some experienced mappers were also in attendance. The talk was geared to give an introduction to drive an informal discussion/Q&A versus as a ‘how to’ tutorial.

The meetup was held at ‘Mitsy Mountain Coffee‘. Mitsy Mountain is a spacious coffee shop that has room at the back with a meeting table and large screen that can be used by groups such as ours for meetings. Mitsy wasn’t around when I moved out of Waterloo, but seems like a nice place and is worth visiting again the next time I’m in KW.
