At precisely 9 am, classroom C was packed with participants and coordinators alike. The main agenda of the day, the mapping workshop conducted by MapBox started right on time. Arun Ganesh, Sajjad Anwar and Pratik Yadav from MapBox spoke about various facets of mapping – from map making to spatial data analysis. The morning session saw a brief presentation on Geo-spatial imagery, tips and tricks while using resources like OpenStreetMaps, Mapillary and MapBoxStudio and an introduction to crowd sourced mapping. After the presentations, all teams were eager to understand how various types of mapping could be used in their projects and were individually mentored by the MapBox Team in the pre-lunch session. The afternoon was spent understanding how different resources function and the optimal usage for each, courtesy a demo from the MapBox Team. Post the demo, the teams either chose to go back to the field to explore the new found mapping enthusiasm or stayed behind to indulge in some mapping wizardry. Post dinner, all the participants along with mentors and organizers had a hearty time with an hour of fun filled games. All in all, it was a “mappy” day here at Bypasslab!
