Tbilisi Mapping Party

Of course building up a community of interested participants is integral to open mapping projects, hence we're organizing Tbilisi's first OSM mapping party this Saturday. We look forward to getting new mappers involved!

CaucasusMap is about developing open maps throughout the region, building an active mapping community, providing technology training, and making active use of the data. JumpStart will be launching a pilot program in the Shida Kartli region of Georgia (around Gori) to create public domain map data over the coming months. This time around, we're training community organizers, who will train and work with local volunteers to map the region. Alongside this we'll offer trainings to other groups in Georgia and encourage an active OpenStreetMap community.
