Hike and Map along the Staten Island Greenbelt

Mar 12 at 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

The Staten Island Greenbelt is missing trails and features on OpenStreetMap (OSM), a collaborative platform for collecting geographic data and displaying it; the “wiki” of maps. We will be using and sharing a wide range of paper and digital tools to collect data in-person while hiking from St. George’s new NYC Ferry terminal to Great Kills Beach. There will be an optional virtual event beforehand to talk about using OSM, other open data layers, and the trail, and the borough.

No OSM or hiking experience needed, but wear a pair of shoes with good grip. Vaccination and masks required! You may take off your mask when outside hiking.

Event will happen on Saturday, March 12, with Sunday, March 13 being the rain date.
