2016 Unofficial Map of Black Rock City

Post by cherryblossom73 » Sun Jul 24, 2016 9:13 pm

From the Unofficial Map Team:

"Much of the team is pretty busy this year with projects so we are off to a very late start. I'm looking into alternate mapping options to help automate the process. In the meantime, we are accepting pin submissions starting right now!

Fill out the form here to submit your camp and please share with your Burner friends: http://goo.gl/forms/S431MuyWwpfoVpuL2

We are also accepting new volunteers should we not be able to automate. Details can be found on the form linked above."

2016 Unofficial Art Map

Post by Crockett » Tue Aug 02, 2016 7:24 pm

Want to pin your art installation on the 2016 Unofficial Map of Black Rock City? We have a layer dedicated to you!
http://unofficialbrcmap.com

This is a great way to let people know roughly where they can seek out your art piece and get excited about it. (Because I want to know where your art is and get excited about it!)

Submit your art installation here:
http://art.unofficialbrcmap.com

Remember, this is unofficial so please read our disclaimer and work with the Placement Team on your arrival to the playa. I understand that things can change so this is just for fun. I also understand if you want your amazing contribution to remain a surprise, too - there's something to be said about pursuing that vague thing on the horizon to discover the best art piece you've seen all week that you can't wait to tell your friends about. You can also be vague about your piece and still pin it on the map. We're easy.

That map's fucked up. They have Effigare not going thru at 6:30. Barbie Death Village goes from E to G, but they have F going thru and that's wrong. What's the matter with you people? We'll get run over! Oh the humanity!!!

Haaaaaa! Now I'm going to ride right through Barbie Death Village on my bike and blame it on the map.

Indeed, the underlying grid on Google Maps is all messed up. I've submitted several corrections, including the one you pointed out, via the official Google Map Maker tool for approval. I've also escalated the official city plan grid to the Google Maps team via some Google employees to their internal forum. We'll see if and when those corrections are implemented.

In the meantime, this is only meant to give folks a rough (and unofficial) idea of who your neighbors are.

Slight correction on the post above. Artists are to visit The ARTery on playa for Art placement, not the Placement Team. But then, artists probably already know that. Burn on.
