Description This geolocation pilot event will evangelize the community to adopt MozStumbler & use it on daily basis to enrich the Mozilla location-service.

Venue Red Hat Premises, IBC Knowledge Center, Bannerghtta Main Road

City Bangalore

Region Karnataka

Country India

Pitch

We need to send out the message why it is important to have an open location-service, which can be tremendously helpful for other FLOSS projects which can leverage from it (e.g. OSM).

Format

The event will focus on the early-adopter target audience, who already have a good sense of geolocation, maps, traffic-data etc.

We'll break the event in two parts:

  • The promotion/demonstration of the Mozilla Location Service
  • Wander around the city with MozStumbler app on the devices

Outcomes

The MozStumbler leaderboard should be a good motivation to keep a healthy competition among the contributors. We also need to plan around the reward model for the contribution stats. Breaking in groups, we can cover a huge part of the city.
