EqualStreetNames

This project is coordinated by Open Knowledge Belgium with the support of OpenStreetMap Belgium and Wikimedia Belgium.

EqualStreetNames is made possible thanks to equal.brussels.

Why

The names of public spaces (streets, avenues, squares and others) define the identity of a city and how citizens interact with it. The region of Brussels suffers from a major inequality between male and female street names and we want to help fix this.

There are several ways to approach the inequality of street names and leverage a positive change in our society. Ours is with the use of Open Data to create a map visualizing the streetnames of a city by gender.

The project start with Brussels, Belgium in March 2020 and since then, this project has been replicated in several cities across multiple countries.

You can see all the cities on a map: https://equalstreetnames.org/

How

To make this happen, we used open data - data which can be freely used, modified, and shared by anyone for any purpose - from OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia.

For more details, see docs/README.md

Data

Data is available in the data/ directory of each city (see cities directory).

Data is automatically updated once a week.

Following data is available for each city:

  • gender.csv : List of streetnames in CSV (Comma-separated values) format with streetname, gender, and Wikidata item ;
  • other.csv : List of streetnames in CSV (Comma-separated values) format that are not related to a person (with Wikidata item if available) ;
  • relations.geojson + ways.geojson : Streets in GeoJSON format with streetname, gender, Wikidata item and details (when available) ;
  • metadata.json
    • Datetime of the last data update
    • Number of streetnames for each source
    • Number of streetnames for each gender:
      • F : cisgender female ;
      • M : cisgender male ;
      • FX : transgender female ;
      • MX : transgender male ;
      • X : intersex ;
      • NB : non-binary ;
      • + : multiple ;
      • ? : unknown ;
      • - : not related to a person ;
  • boundary.geojson : Boundary of the city in GeoJSON format (only the streets that are inside this boundary are processed) ;
