Hacking The Map * H&D

Using Queering The Map, a community generated mapping project, as a jumping off point, Hacking The Map will explore the potentials of counter-mapping through the hands-on development of participatory mapping platforms. The first day of the workshop would begin with a round-table discussion around the political potentials of counter-mapping in a digital context (using open-source mapping tools such as GoogleMapsAPI and OpenStreetMaps), strategies of resisting the collection of user-data, and the power of online anonymity.
