Designer on Mattapan Mapping Gentrification Project

We have built a basic prototype map, are having user testing with Mattapan residents and are meeting every week at 7pm ET on Zoom which you'd be welcome to join via codeforboston.org, and are going into a next phase with a fresh beginning. Previous successful Code for Boston map-oriented projects include https://migrantservicemap.com

The Mattapan Mapping Project is a community-based initiative to collect and share resident stories alongside quantitative and spatial data about how Mattapan is changing on a single open-source online platform. Mattapan is a neighborhood of the city of Boston. The goal is to provide information all in one place to empower residents to take civic action and advocate for equitable policy.

The project partners Powerful Pathways with Code for Boston volunteers to pilot a web-based tool that enables community members to visualize data, browse photos/videos/audio oral histories, perform basic map inquiries, and provide new inputs to this community-centered planning platform. We are working closely with the Greater Mattapan Neighborhood Council with funding from the Sasaki Foundation.
