The architects Sophie Davin and Lucía Villers created “Cartografías del patrimonio”, a project that uses public data to create maps with information about Mexico City architectural, urban and natural heritage.
The databases of the Mexico City Portal, the Geographic Information System of Mexico City and Open Street Maps, the INAH (National Institute of Anthropology and History), INBA (National Institute of Fine Arts) and SEDUVI (Secretariat of Urban Development and Housing) were used.
For the two young architects, the goal was to catalogue and bring together in a single document all the information available on heritage in a unified way for the entire city. Inside you can find all kinds of information, from the latest renovation of a property to the subdivision of urban public areas.
The city’s heritage is of great importance to society at large, to students, researchers, academics and professionals. For this reason, the maps are available for free consultation, they can be used by anyone with interests related to projects of this type, just visit this site.
