Dale & list,
TeachOSM has initiated a project with the US Census Bureau we've been
calling 'Missing America', dedicated to mapping those marginal areas and
vulnerable populations. We're just getting organized, but anticipate local
communities playing a part in both mapping as well as community
organization. Happy to chat more off list.
