OpenStreetMap US

Instructions for mapping OpenStreetMap often describe discrete elements; if you know the tags you can begin mapping useful and interpretable data. Pedestrian networks, in contrast, must be mapped holistically and for interpretation by a wide variety of pedestrians, including people with disabilities. In this session, we will explore a holistic pedestrian network mapping strategy focused on flexible interpretability and demonstrate scalable and varied approaches we have used to ask equity questions of pedestrian access where these data exist in OpenStreetMap, including access to transit, geospatial inequities (such as by neighborhood), and therefore relation to a wide set of demographic inequities in access to (semi)urban infrastructure.
