Mapping Pedestrian Facilities in the Greater Philadelphia Region
The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) is developing a regional sidewalk inventory for the Greater Philadelphia Region. In an effort to keep the inventory updated and to expand on the pedestrian facility GIS datasets, DVRPC will be developing a mapping portal where civic tech communities, municipalities, and counties will have access to tools to contribute to the existing sidewalk inventory. Organizations in Seattle (the Taskar Center and UW) have successfully held mapathons and created routable pedestrian networks using the OpenSidewalk framework and are looking to expand on that effort. At this event, you'll learn about DVRPC's sidewalk inventory, the OpenSidewalk project, and will have the opportunity to weigh in on how the civic tech community could possibly contribute to these efforts. Thanks to DVRPC for sponsoring this event by providing food, space, and organizational support. If you haven't been the DVRPC space for IREG meetings, now is your chance!
