Open Call for Detroit Map Submissions



Maps are more than data and geography, they are also significant visual tools for sharing information and represent the person making the map.

Did you just finish up a semester project? Was there a mapping component? Did you pull together some interesting data on Detroit?

DETROITography invites you to submit your Detroit mapping project to be featured on the site!


  • Must be a map of Detroit or Detroit within the regional geography
  • Must include at least a paragraph of text that explains or contextualizes the map project.
  • The map may be created using any software or may be hand drawn.
  • Be creative. Maps can be used to describe virtually any subject or topic.
  • All data used to create the map must be cited properly and verifiable.
  • The map may not be the product of commercial work and cannot be currently for sale in any way.
  • The map cannot infringe upon any individual personal rights or copyrighted materials in any way.
