Collaborative Mapping

Founded by myself and Dr. on Geography Miguel Sevilla in 2016, Collaborative Mapping is an action-research group of enthusiasts aimed to foster citizen innovation and collective intelligence through Voluntary Geographic Informationand that result in collaborative maps at the service of citizens. We do so through participatory projects and periodical meetings and talks about tools, methodologies or related topics such as Free Culture and Informationalism paradigm. Some of our main achievements so far have been the organization of Medecins Sans Frontieres’s Humanitarian Hackaton in Spain (2017, 2018 and 2019), leading Mapping parties for Accessible Zaragoza project, or giving a number of talks and workshops on VGI and tools such as Leaflet, Carto, Mapbox, OpenStreetMap, Overpass API, Mapillary, uMap…

Since then, I have been coordinating the group’s activities as well with Dr. Miguel Sevilla-Callejo and Alejandro Suárez, Héctor Hochoa and Joan Cano, who joined the staff soon afterwards.

I love learning, teaching and researching, as well as sharing and visualizing data, specially with maps. I have a technical and social background and my multiple research interests are centered around the commodifications between cities, technology and society within informationalism and free culture paradigm. So far, I have applied that approach on the topic of social and spatial inequities.
