‪This article describes the different steps that have punctuated the collaboration between the Transilien and OpenStreetMap France teams throughout the development of an open geographical database mapping the stations of the Île-de-France network. It shows that the partners in this project faced a series of challenges that gradually led them to reconsider the place of the data they wanted to make available, to find ways to equip the data labor, but also to reorganize themselves over time. From redefining the conditions for data production to taking into account the conditions for their maintenance, these challenges highlight the socio-technical depth of geographical data that are intended to be “open,” as well as the work on which their very existence and availability depend. This case invites us to pay attention to the forms of cooperation that are invented in the very production of data and that bring out possible alternatives for the digital governance of territories.‪‪ ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬
