After the successful street mapping pilot in 2009, JumpStart Georgia expanded the mapping to include the entire country. Setting up offices in the regions, community organizers trained and led groups into the villages to collect street data. As more and more data poured in, the street map grew in size and detail. In addition to making the raw data publicly available for download on its website, JumpStart provided the data to MapQuest, OpenStreetMap, Nokia and Google. By the end of the project, these partners and local businesses were using our data and doing things that would not have been possible without it.
