Mapathon On Feb 20th, Fab Lab Limerick will be running a Mapathon - which is a single day event, from 10:30am to 5pm. This is a general workshop on Open Source digital mapping and active mapping projects in Limerick City and beyond. We will introduce participants to various mapping softwares(available during the course & online), Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and examples of open source mapping projects. Participants will be familiarised with the following topics: Points, Paths & Polygons, Relations; Vectors, Coordinate Systems, and overlays. Animated maps, and 2D static renderings. No previous experience is required, -just an interest in digital mapping! Participants are required to bring their own laptop for the workshop. The event is free, but we do need anyone intending to attend to book in advance. You can find more info at
