To add more points-of-interest to the city map as well as tackle areas that still need mapping.

  • Road Verification
    • Look at the resources section for a link to the City's site where they have data on proper street names and locations.
  • Adding Alleys
    • There are many thousands of small alleys throughout the city, many of which are not mapped, or are mapped incorrectly by way of TIGER
  • Bus Routes
  • Building outlines
  • Neighborhood Polygons
  • ZIP Codes
  • Addressing

Events

  • Saturday, July 12, 2014 starting in or near the Patterson Park pagoda at 11 a.m. (Edit on day of event: Rain location looks like it won't be needed, since it's beautiful out. If it gets stormy before noon, check back here for a fallback location.) If you have a netbook (or even better, a netbook and a data plan to which wifi connections can be tethered), we encourage you to bring it, as we'll be working in pairs of two and staying mostly in pretty docile neighborhoods. That said, if you're not comfortable walking around Baltimore with a laptop, that is understandable, and we'll certainly be happy to let you gather data on paper, then enter it elsewhere after the fact. If you choose to bring technology, we will have you sign a waiver acknowledging the basics of urban life (i.e., some possibility of crime).
