How Street Maps Can Be Sexist | Co.Exist | ideas   impact

OpenStreetMap is a massive free map of the world, editable by anyone. Companies like Flickr, Foursquare, and Craigslist all use it in their products. But unlike Google Maps, which rigorously chronicles every address, gas station, and shop on the ground, OpenStreetMap’s perspective on the world is skewed by its contributors.

“When data is being contributed to OpenStreetMap, there is a specific bias because people contribute data they are interested in and familiar with. If they’re all male, maybe they forget to put in day care centers,” says Pickle.

There are far more male contributors than female contributors to OpenStreetMap, though female contributions have been increasing, according to Pickle, who still works for Boundless in the role of chief revenue officer. “Anecdotally, there’s more info [on OpenStreetMap] on strip clubs than day care centers,” he says.

On the Fourth Floor, Bouchra Khalili presents “The Mapping Journey Project” (2008–11), in which the artist met the subject of each video through chance encounters in European cities considered transitory points for the movement of people and goods. In each work, Khalili asked the individuals to narrate their journey from their original home to their current location tracing their path in marker on a two-dimensional map.
