label Workshop summary

The workshop is tailored to beginners who would like to learn about online mapping tools and how to make and edit online maps. The first half of the workshop will show all the online mapping tools currently available on the web that delegates can use to enhance their own projects and presentations. OpenStreetMaps will be featured in the introduction and a demonstration of how to add and edit features will be provided. The second half of the workshop, each delegate will be asked to log-in to their computer station with their OpenStreetMap account (OpenStreetMap accounts are free). All participants will have the opportunity to enhance Saskatoon's OpenStreetMap information.
