As promised, I added the next OSGeo Dev Evening to the Maptime Belgium chapter : http://maptime.io/belgium/


Your events will now automaticaly appear in OpenStreetMap Belgium calendar (http://calendar.osm.akoo.ovh/).

Still in development though ^^

Thanks Joost for you email and Jonathan for your enthusiasm ! :-)

I support your two propositions and we will certainly speak about these during the AG (and/or the OSGeodevEvening). By the way if some of you are free, they are more than welcome: it will be this Wednesday March 29th at 17:30 (building D, room DC6.126,.Campus Solbosch, Université libre de Bruxelles Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt 50 - 1050 Bruxelles).

Cheers and I am pleased to strengthen our collaboration,

Could not have said it better !

As I use OSGEO tools and OpenStreetMap database on a daily basis, I could not be more happy if the two of us join our forces !

Maë//e told us you use you wiki page for your events : http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Belgium#2017
If you agree, I'll add your OSGEOBE events to Maptime Belgium (http://maptime.io/belgium/) starting by next OSGEODevEvening !

And I could help with events about web cartography (OpenLayers, Leaflet, MapServer, ...).

Even though we're natural partners, we don't do that much together. After the National Mapathon, Jonathan, Maelle and myself had a few beers and a long talk. It convinced me that we could do more.


I would like to propose two things:


- at OSM Belgium, we use Meetup [1] to organize all our events. But we publish all of them at our Maptime [2] page too. How about we share the Maptime page to announce both OSM and OsGeo events?


- Maptime is actually supposed to be about easy events where you actually learn to do some webmapping. For example, learning how to make a Leaflet map. We would like to organize a little event where you can learn how to build a simple map with Overpass-Turbo [3], Umap [4] or Mapcontrib [5]. All very userfriendly, but still quite powerful. I think it would be an excellent thing to do together, because we could recruit people that tend more towards data-collection for OpenStreetMap Belgium and those that are more interested in open source software for OsGeo.


Also, I think it would be very fun to do.


Because it is within the scope of the Maptime project, we could get Free Pizza (sponsored by Carto, former CartoDB). Who doesn't like free pizza?


Anyway, share your thoughts, and efforts :)
