{ Preliminary session description }

OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a collaborative project to create a free editable geographic database of the world. Over the years, OSM has grown to be the go to geo wiki for geospatial information. From the Department of Transportation to CitiBike to Community Boards, OSM is a critical component of New York City’s public realm. 

This session will dive into OSM’s history and how community groups are using OSM to further their advocacy. We will end with how New Yorkers can harness the OSM’s power to map the public realm and develop a new level of data literacy.
