About the osl hub

The osl hub is a living, growing archive of data science tools, projects, topics, and other resources. It's aim is to make it easier to discover relevant tools and explore the network of related things to help you on your way, and provide a second life for the excellent work that sooner or later loses connections to new discourse.

The open spatial hub is maintained by the Open Spatial Lab at the University of Chicago.

How to contribute

There are two ways to contribute to the osl hub:

  1. First, on the bottom of each page, there is a link to add comments directly to that article. By signing in with a Notion account or linked social provider, you can add comments directly to the article which hub moderators will review.
  2. If you're interested in directly contributing to the hub, email openspatial [at] uchicago [dot] edu with the title "Hub Contributor Request" and give us a brief description of how you'd like to get involved. For instance, if you have an idea for a particular entry or article, or if you'd like to contribute to moderating a topic like "Tools" or "Methods" more broadly.

About Open Spatial Lab

The Open Spatial Lab at the University of Chicago Data Science Institute creates open source data tools and analytics to solve problems using geospatial data science. The mission of the Open Spatial Lab (OSL) is to diversify perspectives included in spatial data science practice and reach a broad audience through more accessible tools for data exploration, management, and visualization. The Lab works with community partners local and across the US to understand needs and uses to activate data for community and policy decision support. Support is provided in part by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
