When & Where
OpenUrban is a nonprofit organization and web platform which promotes the exchange of information and ideas on current and proposed urban development. Specifically, it is the first user-generated web map and wiki focusing on this issue. We embrace crowd sourcing technology as a means to inform and empower. By combining written media with spatial information, OpenUrban creates a powerful tool for people to understand how their cities and communities are changing and supports their active participation in that change.
