The landscape architecture company gruppe F from Berlin used Maptionnaire as part of their project to develop a concept for re-using of the former barracks of Blankefelde-Mahlow, Germany. With the participation process they wanted to reach out to the groups that are difficult to reach with face-to-face methods.
Cities-4-People is a multinational research and innovation project which aims to tackle today’s urban mobility challenges by the promotion of sustainable and people-oriented transportation solutions. Maptionnaire was used in the early phases of the project to identify mobility and transport-related challenges that local people in different parts of Europe face in their everyday life.
We helped the City of Helsinki explore the idea of establishing a national urban park. We facilitated a workshop where planners and park advocates co-designed a survey for crowdsourcing the question, managed the survey’s technical implementation, and processed the results to be directly available for guiding the next steps of the planning process.
The Future Cities Laboratory researchers used Maptionnaire to help create people-centric urban design guidance for the development of a new Singapore waterfront neighborhood. They discovered not only did the citizens have great ideas, but also that Maptionnaire’s user-friendliness motivated people to participate.
Finland’s winter sports capital, Lahti, has made child-friendliness a strategic goal in the development of the city. A necessary precondition for achieving this has been to find ways for including the thoughts and experiences of children into the city’s work processes. At Lahti’s urban planning office, using Maptionnaire has proved to be the best practice.
“Nikkilä Memories” is a project that used Maptionnaire to collect and share people's memories in Sipoo, Finland. While memories are an important part of the history and identity of a place, they also serve as a fruitful source for urban planning and development. In Sipoo’s case, Maptionnaire was used as a participation tool to enhance cultural heritage influence.
