Mapping the NYCGA

User Jack Smith has been hard at work trying to figure out how best to categorize groups on to help people find groups in their area of interest. Recently Jack created this mock up of groups and their potential categories.

Group categorization has been a big challenge for Tech, we have generally stayed away from it because there are many issues with trying to put groups in categories.


  • Keep it simple, use as few categories as possible.
  • Don’t put a group where a group doesn’t feel it belongs.
  • Make sure categories are clear and easy to understand.
