III-Stroogle Maps

At this stage we take all of the information that people have provided through the mental maps, happiness maps, perceptions maps, etc. and try and map them using modern techniqies

One of these is a google map – where the pins that people add to the map are qualitative experiences, emotions or anything that they might want to record on map.

We’ll also be trying to redraw the map in electronic geographical space to reflect the mental maps they people have provided.  So for example if the Sub Rooms is featured very strongly on a majority of the mental maps, we’ll increase the size of the symbology that represents it….

Ideas

Stroogle map pins to represen the following categories

Experiences

Safety – “I don’t feel safe here”

Place perception   – “Amazing Places”

Routes – adding walking, cycling, wheelchair/ pushchair friendly – to redress the car bias on maps

Could take roads out from the map altogether to see what happens?

Photographic mapping – use Geotagged images in flickr to produce a mega photo map of stroud
