OpenStreetMap Building Import Party

The Los Angeles Times is hosting an OpenStreetMap building import party at their downtown office this Saturday from noon until 4 p.m. RSVP here.

For those that don’t know, OpenStreetMap is an open-source mapping database that anyone can edit and use.

The Times, Mapbox and local mappers are using the county’s building file (combined with data from the Assessor file) to add all the buildings to OSM.

More than half a million buildings have been added already, with about 2.5 million left. They’ll have folks on hand to introduce you to OpenStreetMap and the editing software JOSM. You can also jump in and start adding buildings today by following the import guide.
