MountainViews will be holding its twelfth Gathering on Friday, 24th Feb 2023, open to all.

Note new venue.

This year we have Dr Peter Mooney from Maynooth University. His talk is entitled “OpenStreetMap, the largest database of freely available geographical data available today.” OSM based maps are the basis of most of the online hillwalkers apps. Its data is collected and curated by citizens, special interest groups, scientists and professional geographers from all around the world.
