Citizen Mapmakers Rewrite the Urban Narrative

“Individuals inside cities and elsewhere are creating maps for themselves and in fact giving us their own narrative of what a cityscape is about. They are telling us what is important to them, and they’re mapping the kinds of things that previously would not be mapped. It’s becoming part of the creation of a culture of a city.”

—Fraser Taylor, Director of the Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre at Carleton University
