Close to a decade ago at BCB, I spoke about how citizen sourced map data from the OpenStreetMap project can one day revolutionize the future of maps, and today I find myself in an organization that is making that dream a reality.
The mapping world has traditionally been monopolized by a select few organizations that have controlled access to the data and the technology to create the applications that benefit the people. At Mapbox, we’re breaking the paradigm by bringing citizen curated maps to the world using technology that is open at the heart and built for the future.
In this demo, we will look the latest in the world of open source geospatial data, data driven technologies and map design tools that empower citizens to understand the world in ways that was never before possible.
