Collaborative Mapping with MIT CoLab

A Peer Discovery Tool for Community Organizers

Visit Mapping Democracy in Action to view the demo.


As a contract user research manager for the MIT Community Innovators Lab, I led a team of 12 researchers, designers and developers. The team conducted field and remote user research with 1,200 grassroots democratic organizing groups across the country. We designed, developed and deployed (4 week sprint) a collaborative mapping tool to help related groups discover each other and connect.
