the most successfull flickr photowalk ever

… and it wasn't even a flickr photowalk ! … it was The 18th CloudMade OpenStreetMap Summer 2008 Mapping Party ! CloudMade were giving out some great OpenStreetMap MOO Stickers and I legitimately added photos from the 1 hr photo / geotagging / mapping walk to ALL the flickr groups below.

Interestingly only 6 people had signed up on the upcoming event  but 16 turned up on the night !

If you want to help change the (map of the) world (or just get a sticker) turn up at the next OpenStreetMap event apparently thet meet every week in London !

One Planet Sutton & Open Street Map

One Planet Living in Sutton is an ever-evolving programme of projects that will cover all of the One Planet Living principles and deliver the Sustainability Action Plan. We work with many partners and share knowledge to ensure that together we come up with the right solutions for a sustainable Sutton.

One Planet Living in Sutton is a hugely ambitious programme of work – getting the whole borough from a 3 planet level to a 1 planet level will take imagination, hard work and innovation from every resident, business and organisation in Sutton as well as input from organisations with expertise in each of the principles.

But its not all hard work – we hope that it will be fun, inspirational and great for building community spirit.

One Planet Living in Sutton are using OpenStreetMap and a number of Web 2.0 sites to spread their message !
