This project aims to put local maps detailing potential hazards as well shelter zones in the hands of San Francisco residents. The maps are made with OpenStreetMap and available offline.
Our hopes are that these community-driven, open-source maps can be made for neighborhoods across the city and beyond.

A conservationist at heart and a geographer in mind, he’s spent eight years of his career at all stages of the geospatial data management life cycle in utilities, environmental consulting and big tech. Disaster recovery, ocean science and VR-capable 3D maps that function at the intersection of environmental science and advanced technology are among his greatest cartographic passions. He teaches Introduction to Cartography at City College of San Francisco and is an active member of his local community emergency response team.
