To expand and refine a set of digital tools and workflows to generate and map datasets of racial covenants from communities across the United States within one web platform.

Through a process of experimentation over the last four years, Mapping Prejudice has developed a powerful, new methodology that combines optical character recognition (OCR), crowd-sourcing and geographic information science (GIS), to map racial covenants found in property deeds at an unprecedented level of granularity. This has allowed the project to create a comprehensive spatial dataset of racial covenants for Hennepin County, Minnesota (Minneapolis and the surrounding suburbs)—the first such dataset in the country. The Mapping Prejudice team will leverage what it has learned from mapping racial covenants in Hennepin County to open up new opportunities for public engagement and research on the history of segregation and the urban environment in the United States.
