‘MEASURING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD’
‘MEASURING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD’?
At City Health 2014, the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences will demonstrate how citizens can become actively involved in assessing the health of their neighbourhood via their smartphone.
WHAT YOU'LL EXPERIENCE
For the first time at the City Health International event, we will be engaging the delegates into an active, field experience. Conference delegates are invited to actively participate in this open data experiment by performing observations on the streets close to the conference site, using a smartphone as an input device.
During the final plenary, a report of the activity will be presented by the University. The gathered data will be visualized directly during the event, so a collaborative health measurement mapping will be created.
WHAT IT TAKES...
A smartphone with internet connection.
We have 10 phones available for people who do not have a smart phone with internet.
10 minutes of your time
during a coffee break for instruction: it’s easy!
30-60 minutes of your time
have a nice walk outside and collaborate in measuring the health of the environment!
