#HackTheVille with Data for Democracy

We’ll also be working on the Global Data Ethics Pledge (GDEP) with a couple of the working groups, the Ethical Imagination working group, the Github working group and the Ambassadors working group all have items to help with, plus adding OpenStreetMap data for the American Printing House for the Blind’s Nearby Explorer™ to make our communities more accessible and inclusive, so join us and #HackTheVille the D4D way!

OpenStreetMap is built by a community of mappers that contribute and maintain data about roads, trails, cafés, railway stations, and much more, all over the world. OpenStreetMap emphasizes local knowledge. Contributors use aerial imagery, GPS devices, and low-tech field maps to verify that OSM is accurate and up to date.
OpenStreetMap’s community is diverse, passionate, and growing every day. Our contributors include enthusiast mappers, GIS professionals, engineers running the OSM servers, humanitarians mapping disaster-affected areas, and many more. To learn more about the community, see the OpenStreetMap Blog, user diaries, community blogs, and the OSM Foundation website.
OpenStreetMap is open data: you are free to use it for any purpose as long as you credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors. If you alter or build upon the data in certain ways, you may distribute the result only under the same license. See the Copyright and License page for details.
