The majority of the actions recorded in the Shifting Streets database were drawn from the "Local actions to support walking and cycling during social distancing" dataset, created by Tabitha Combs and hosted by the University of North Carolina’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center. These data were complemented by the "COVID-19 Livable Streets Response Strategies" dataset, created by Mike Lydon of Streetplans, and the COVID Mobility Works dataset. The data in the Shifting Streets database were merged, harmonized, and cleaned with the help of Henry Velandia, Diana Giraldo, Miguel Cuellar, Sebastián Vega, Carolina Fernandez, and Luke Morin and led by Carlos F Pardo and Tabitha Combs. Additional information was provided by EpiAndes, the Epidemiology group at Universidad de Los Andes, under the guidance of Olga Lucía Sarmiento Dueñas with support from Karen Lorena Fajardo Ardila, and Paola Andrea Martínez Bravo. The Shifting Streets database was built during July and August, 2020.
