It was a civic tech kid's daydream! 🚲 🗺 🚲 🗺
Yesterday, we mapped bicycle parking in lower Manhattan with the NYC Department of Transportation, Manhattan Community Board 1, and BetaNYC. A group of us met up and validated existing bicycle parking data and added missing street furniture data to OpenStreetMap (OSM) using two field mapping tools, FieldPapers and ArcGIS Survey123.
Ultimately, we want to validate all NYC street furniture data on the open data portal. Don't you? Give us a shout if you want to help build the process!
Thanks for bringing the Bike Rack-a-thon to Open Data Week!

We want to hear from you! Share your #opendataweek experience with us. Tag @BetaNYC and @NYCAnalytics. Or pop in to say hi on the BetaNYC Slack.

Have a great day!
