OpenStreetMap US

Indicators based on OpenStreetMap data have been key to ITDP’s success advocating for bicycling in Brazil – and now we’re taking the strategy worldwide.

We’re building a global web platform, based on, to visualize infrastructure for bicycling, walking, and public transit in cities around the world. This platform will “close the loop” between mappers, advocates, and city planners. It will make OSM data easy to view and interpret, helping cities set goals and incentivizing better mapping.
