FAQs

OPEN Glasgow demonstrates how technology and information can make life in the city smarter, safer and more sustainable. It encourages citizens to explore and rediscover their city through the vast amounts of information it generates every day.

What is the OPEN Glasgow Community Map?

The OPEN Glasgow community map is about using and sharing Glaswegians’ local knowledge of their community, for example; community centres, activities or sports. This will make it easier for everyone to access services throughout the city.

Why does community mapping need to involve citizens?

People can focus on what is important to their community and keep the information up to date. This includes information about clubs, activities, and places of interest. For example, if you notice a new service in your local area, you have the power to add this knowledge to the map so that others can use this service as well.

Where does the content come from?

It comes from citizens like you, communities and organisations who share their local knowledge of the city. The map of services is made by the community and for the community.

What are the benefits of participating?

The city has a wealth of services available to citizens and a lot of people who can help users find the right service for them. But what if we all shared what we know about the city? Could we make it easier to find the right service, whether it’s around the corner or on the other end of town?

How do you participate?

To add services to this map you will need to register first. Once registered you will be ready to add a service, which you can find on the menu bar. More information about contributing to the community map can be found in the user manual and video tutorials.

I’ve just added a service, but I am unable to see this on the map?

A website moderator needs to review the services before it is added on the map. You will receive an email once the service has been approved and added on the map.
