OpenStreetMap US

Lubbock Texas’s history of racial and class segregation has modern impacts. Texas Tech YouthMappers and a local NGO apply OSM to further quantify local inequality and disparity. We hosted a 3-day livestream map-a-thon, part of our mapping series. We are also mapping disparity in our greenspaces on OSM. Inaccessibility to greenspace has lasting social, biological, and economic impacts to communities. We are identifying and tagging individual trees with species wikidata using FieldPapers, to examine species diversity. This work aids in policy decisions directly impacting our community.
