OpenStreetMap is a free, open source map that can be contributed, edited and used by anyone anywhere. Mapping parties are social events where experienced and new mappers can meet to share and learn more about the project. The events are generally held in a public place, and allow time for discussion, mapping and editing.
You can invite your friends and be taught how to map using GPS, paper, on foot, car or bike. The objective is to place Marikina City on the OSM map and make Marikina City the best mapped city in OSM.
