Three Cities Using Open-Source Data

Mapping tools and work with geospatial data are essential for cities to address today’s urban challenges — from traffic safety to disaster response and neighborhood health. The open-source mapping company Mapbox is collaborating with Melbourne, West Midlands Combined Authority in UK, and Bloomington, Indiana, to gather first-hand insights on their particular local needs. With these partner cities we will build data-driven tools using mobile sensor data, which will be available as open source tools to other cities later on.
