OSMUK AGM schedule

JN Jez Nicholson Public Seen by 205

Now that we have a date-and-time for the AGM i'd like to build a mini schedule. It doesn't need to be tightly scheduled, but I think would be good to have some set things to give it structure.

Parameters so far are:
* We have the room from 1-5pm.
* The official part of the AGM will start at 1pm. Last time it only took 15 minutes. This time may be slightly more (30 mins?).
* From 3pm, we have a 'Wikidata Meets OSMUK' meetup with Wikimedia UK https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/london-wikidata-meetup-3-wikidata-osmuk-tickets-61869712977


We have spoken about some scheduled and unscheduled lightning talks

BTW, was Eventbrite ticketing successful last year...and do we want to do the same this year?

eventbrite is fine.

One annoying thing: The maps on there are google maps. But... it does have an option to not display a map. And then it also lets you use some HTML in the description, and so you use this to put a linkified map image. See any missing maps eventbrite listing as an example: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/missing-maps-july-mapathon-tickets-63104323731 Can someone do that for this event listing?

comme ça?

Hi. I find Eventbrite good from my perspective as an attender.
Talk - TfL cycling initiative update and how many organisations could collaborate on such large projects. Could techniques be made available nationally.?
Activity - map the block in which Wikimedia resides - its barely mapped - 1 person driving JOSM and several groups collecting data to input.

Has anyone approaching the National Trust people we've been in contact with to see if they'd like to say anything about their path mapping using OSM?


Andrew Black Wed 15 May 2019 11:58AM

i'd be interested ih hearing about this.


RobJN Wed 15 May 2019 8:23PM

Great shout regarding National Trust. I have written to them to find out if they are up for it.


RobJN Mon 20 May 2019 8:33PM

Hi both. National Trust have come back to confirm that they are up for this. @jeznicholson: Can you please add them (Andrew Woods and Ian Dawes) to the agenda.


RobJN Wed 15 May 2019 9:30PM

EventBrite is good with me. I assume we will email those who register to say that they can come earlier. No reason for wikimedia folk not to attend the bit between the AGM and 3pm.

Oops, I didn't spot Rob's comment that he's contacted National Trust.
I've just e-mailed some people who might give good talks, including Huw from NT.

For TfL, I think Rob has a better contact/relationship with the Cycle Infrastructure Database(CID) Team. I could contact someone in the Journey Planner team, they might be able to talk about why they value OSM but I think they're not (yet) very far on using it.
