Fika on Brix, Mills Park Centre, 86 Brixton Street, Beckenham, Gosnells [map]
We’ll be heading south-east for this month’s OpenStreetMap mapping party, to explore Mills Park and environs — a short walk from the Beckenham railway station. It’s an area with streams and trails, highways and bike paths, and lots to map!
Meet at 11AM at the Fika on Brix café, located in the Mills Park Centre. We’ll start with morning tea there (generously provided by OSGeo Oceania) and a discussion of mapping tools and techniques, before planning how we want to map and heading off in small groups.
No experience is necessary! Bring your phone (and if you’re keen, see our list of recommended apps to get some ideas of how to get started). Alternatively, you might like to print off some Field Papers for some offline mapping.
We’ll meet back at the café for lunch (the kitchen closes at 2 so we’ll return before then).
Coordination on the day will be done via the Geogeeks Slack.

It’s our last hack night of the year! So don’t miss the chance to come chat with open geospatial enthusiasts, solve problems together and gather inspiration.
Bring your projects, your challenges and ideas! All skill levels and areas of interest are welcome. There’ll be people with interests in OpenStreetMap, all things QGIS, data collection and processing, and more.
Pizza and drinks are provided. Please register so we can cater well :)
Take a peek at some of our plans for surveying (aka "exploring") the city (and scribble in your own):
