Maptime Berlin –
A monthly meetup for map enthusiasts in Berlin
Year: 2014 – ongoing
01. About Maptime:
Since September 2014, I am the organizer of Maptime Berlin. Maptime is a regular map hack night, where we meet to work on digital maps, learn about geospatial data, and teach each other the latest cartographic tools. After an inspirational trip to the Stamen office in San Francisco in 2014, I decided to bring this amazing format to Berlin.
Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.
This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.
