Discussion Questions: Geospatial Revolution: Mapping Power
- How would you feel if the entire city except your neighborhood appeared on a printed map?
- How would you go about mapping your neighborhood? What types of things would be important to you to include? Would it be a walking map or a driving map? How would these modes of transportation make a difference in your map?
- In the video, what do the organizers give as reasons for mapping Kibera?
- Why do you think the government didn’t update its maps to include Kibera? What did the organizers offer as a plausible reason?
- Are there places in America that are largely unmapped? (Think Alaska, Montana.)
