|First day at the workshop Thursday 6th February pm|
Popular applications such as twitter has great potential for future uses, as it is already known to some of the mappers. However, the workshop identified categories that require the use of survey type collectors. For Barrios Altos, there was a need of crowdsourcing information from land uses of individual buildings, to building condition and census data. Twitter was used as a method for submitting uncategorized information and cases of emergencies.
