Our goals are
start the conversation:
from various communities of practice (commons, collaborative economy, ecovillages, p2p, solidarity economy, Transition Town and many others ...) from several countries and continents to testmap at the local level.
in a way that they can easily find their perfect fit to contribute to the collective effort of
TranforMap for OpenStreetMap
engage hackers, users and administrators to contribute their expertise to the further development of the TransforMap technical infrastructure
generate first test data:
generate over 100 Points of Interest (POIs) in various locations. POI can mean: a community garden, a repair café, a community library, etc.
receive in-depth feedback to further refine the taxonomy
generate feedback for the technical front end and back end infrastructure
generate public attention
to grow the network
encourage communities to organize their own Map Jams and use mapping to increase the visibility of the alternatives they promote
