Communities often share the same dilemma: though there are many places and programs doing their part to strengthen the digital inclusion ecosystem, information about their efforts is decentralized for residents. With a good inventory of training sessions, free WiFi locations, hardware resources, and public computing centers, residents can fully leverage local assets that already exist. In addition, practitioners can use that information to see where there might be resource gaps.

This session will provide an overview of different cases and approaches for collecting and sharing information on local public technology resources. No mapping or data collection experience is needed.
