The Sydney-based World Harbour Project has greatly benefited from Maptionnaire, which has made it easy for researchers to involve the public in contributing to science and the planning of sustainable urban port areas around the world.
The Apollo School in Helsinki’s Malminkartano neighborhood used Maptionnaire to have high school students try out online participatory mapping as part of their geo-media class. In this advanced geography course, pupils train their geographical thinking, learn how to analyze their surroundings using a variety of methods, and how to interpret the data they gather.
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.
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.
