First Mapping Party of 2010

This Saturday’s mapping party in Prospect Heights was a great start to the season! Prospect Heights Community Farm graciously hosted our orientation session, which turned into a jubilant meet-&-greet where some of our staunchest supporters finally met face to face. Five teams of mappers set out and in just a few hours completed 25% of the total block segments. We wrapped up the day with a report back and got some great advice on what could be improved about the user experience. Unofficially, we can say that the greatest factor affecting efficiency is talking to strangers — we are amazed by the sheer number of passers-by who walk up and want to know what we are doing and why!

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made it happen in the hot, hot heat.
