MAPCHESTER
MapChester is a collaborative 'wikimap' project, 
generated and maintained by users in the same way 
as Wikipedia. On 13th and 14th May join us as we 
map Manchester in a weekend using GPS (Global 
Positioning System) devices, which monitor 
signals from satellites to record location. When 
bands like the Happy Mondays stalked the 
Hacienda, Manchester was dubbed Madchester; now, 
a new generation of phreaks are in town, renaming 
the city Mapchester, showing that it isnt just 
music that puts the city on the map. Register in 
advance to participate, further details available at:
