OpenStreetMap US

My session will focus on defining what makes up the curb, thus identifying curb-assets. For the purposes of curb management, we will treat the curb as an asset that houses many other assets, including bus stops, bike lanes, waste management, trees, parking, parklets (curb patios), bike sharing stations, loading zones, etc. By understanding that these are assets that make up the curb, one can then work on mapping and inventorying them. These are all things we can map in OSM!

Local governments and municipalities could then, potentially, use this data to provide and enforce curb-asset management practices.
