WG 1 - Digital methods
Digital methods explores (recent and novel) ICT-tools to research the use of, and user-behaviour in public spaces. It will assess scientific, technical and sociological information (or opportunities) relevant for understanding the interweaving of people in (and with) public spaces.
The purpose of this is, in part, to investigate the potential impacts and options for adding value to public spaces. Within this WG field experiments with new methodologies will be undertaken in case studies.
The leading questions are:
- How can we use ICT and new media technology to enhance our understanding of the uses and users of public spaces?
- What can we learn about public spaces through the use of new technologies or scraping public data that users of public spaces have produced?
