Crowdsourcing Neighborhood Boundaries

Bostonography is running a project to find out where Bostonians believe their neighborhood boundaries lie.

The project is using a Google Maps tool which allows participants to draw on a Google Map where they think Boston neighborhood boundaries run. This has allowed Bostonography to create a map of all the amalgamated responses so far.

The results for each neighborhood are also being analysed to see which neighborhood boundaries participants have a strong agreement about and to highlight areas where there are contradictory opinions about which neighborhood they belong to.
