It seems that now is the time for a new meeting gathering all those that have an interest in the TransforMap initiative.
The idea is a get-together and see what we can do in Berlin in relation to TransforMap. How can Berlin(ers) contribute? How can Berlin(ers) benefit?
Here is a Dudle to find a date (please fill until Wednesday 21.01): https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/TransforMap_Berlin_Chapter/
Once a date found, I propose to send the following email more widely and publicize it somewhere on the TransforMap website and/or http://discourse.transformap.co/c/collaboration/berlin-chapter.
Dear maps' and alternatives' friends,
So after the long Christmas pause comes the time for calling a new meeting. The idea is to discuss what a Berlin Chapter of the TransforMap community could realize.
For those who are not familiar with TransforMap it is a cross-community initiative to build an online mapping ecosystem that would allow all alternative economies (commons, solidary economies, P2P, sharing, Transition Towns, etc) and their local iniatives to be mapped consistently and appear all on one big map that can be filtered (and also hundreds of resampled smaller maps).
The project is open source and it needs man/womenpower!
Examples of things that can be done through the Berlin Chapter:
- mapping the initiatives that are making a more ecological and inclusive world possible (eg. Sharing Berlin map by OuiShare Berlin)
- to developing bits of software for TransforMap;
- contributing to the development of a taxonomy of initiatives by testing and feedback;
- and more...
