This website is a platform for gathering as many experience of collaborative mapping as possible.
The goal is that of creating a “Map of the Maps” for the debate, exchange of practices, mutual learning.
The collaborative mapping platform is developed within the context of SEiSMiC project.



The SEiSMiC project helps tackle Europe’s biggest urban problems by engaging citizens, identifying social innovation needs, and contributing to future urban policies and research strategies. It builds diverse networks of urban stakeholders to propose effective, widely agreed solutions. It then engages the public in creative ways, so that research learns from citizens, and citizens learn from research.


Collaborative mapping (CM) is emerging as a global phenomenon able to give representation to the urban experience and knowledge in what regards multiple spatial urban issues (both tangible and intangible cultural resources, emergency and post-disaster memories, cultural heritage,  unused public spaces, urban regeneration and urban actors). We define “collaborative mapping” those cartographic tools allowing any user to upload data and information in the maps.


A growing number of cities in Europeis interested by the creation of shared maps through which citizens exchange information about events, services, problems of the city. Collaborative mapping is a powerful tool for the creation of a new model of collaborative governance within which city governments and citizens cooperate in creating data and proposing solution for contemporary urban challenges. Collaborative mapping can be a tool for improving public policy in what regards city planning, strategic planning, welfare services, transport systems.


You can add a CM experience using this form and providing the following information:
– name of website, link and a short description
– how long has the website been online?
– what do you map?
– what territory do you map (neighborhood? City? Region? Nation?)?
– what cartography do you use?
– what kind of organization are you?
