phone mapping

First day at the workshop Thursday 6th February pm

Saturday 8 February PM.The use of phones for mapping have shown great potential, even for users who are not familiar with the use of smart phones. Several applications allow customization of crowdsourcing information and new technologies can aid in speeding up many time consuming processes.

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.

Early visualizations of geolocated information from the field work in Barrios Altos shown below. Results send directly from Lima to London at CASA UCL.
