As part of the MetaMap series, I interviewed Domenico Di Siena, former curator of this blog, about a project he founded in 2007, Meipi, which is a collaborative space where users can upload information and content around a map.
Meipi.org […] is being used by communities, advocacy groups, journalists, artistic collectives, and urban planners to geo-tag information around a topic in a specific region. […] Meipi is a community of developers, designers, and planners that have built and maintained Meipi.org since 2007. Since the software became open source in 2010, an entire community has contributed with its work and support.
Here you can find some examples of different visualizations of maps currently on the platform:
Meip-it Coordinators: Pablo Rey Mazón (Visiting Scientist, Center for Civic Media, MIT) and Alfonso Sánchez Uzábal (Developer and Researcher at Montera34) Meipi developers, Pablo and Alfonso, both collaborate with the core developers from Meipi.com: Guillermo Álvaro Rey and Jorge Álvaro Rey from Lamboratory, Domenico Di Siena, @urbanohumano, and Francesco Cingoliani, @immaginoteca.
