OpenStreetMap US

In March 2020, Harris-Stowe State University partnered with Maxar and other organizations local to St. Louis, to introduce students to careers in the geospatial industry. At our event, we focused on mapping several neighborhoods in downtown St. Louis, identified as priority communities through St. Louis’ GeoFutures Strategic Roadmap.
