East Somerville Community Mapping Project

East Somerville is a community just northwest of Boston, Massachusetts. A group of community activists and interns surveyed the town to create a map that tells a story about their neighborhood. The surveying included walking around photographing the area and interviewing over 200 East Somerville residents. The paper and online map has icons to learn about all different parts of the town. Where are parks and gardens? Which bus stops has shelters? Map even has foot and bicycle traffic around town at different times of the day. The East Somerville Community Mapping Project allows people to get to know East Somerville through the eyes and ears of residents. This maps shows residents and potential residents how to use all the resources East Somerville has to offer.
