About the visualization
Maps are not useful
Not clear/easy to understand
Not visible by their audience
Manually updated -> outdated
Sidewalks do not always conform a good network
Difficult to add information if you are not used to it (technical skills)
Lack of total control -> Uncertainty (about data)
Some keys/values are limited
Difficulties in tracing/crediting the work
Could not attend to everyone who has shown interest on the project:
What are we working now (2019-…)
Let’s talk about the present (and the future)
