OpenStreetMap US

Learn how BetaNYC’s Innovation Fellows, undergraduate students from different academic backgrounds have created a comprehensive public space data playbook that empowers community organizations & individuals to collect, verify, and analyze public realm data. Fellows used OpenStreetMap to identify public amenities, from public bathrooms to wheelchair-accessible play equipment to benches, with a focus on creating more equitable public spaces in New York City. BetaNYC partnered with North Brooklyn Parks Alliance, a local community organization, and Council Member Jennifer Gutiérrez’s District 34 office on this project to use OSM to engage in digital and data literacy.
