Crowdsourcing research: Accessible Zaragoza and PEST Project

Jan 18, 2021 13:00 PM
School of the Built Environment Research Seminar

In this seminar I will present two research projects that share a crowdsourced approach: Accessible Zaragoza and Post-Pandemic Equitable and Sustainable Transport. Accessible Zaragoza is an action-research project of collaborative mapping about urban accessibility in the city of Zaragoza (Spain) I led while I was lecturing at the School of Architecture and Technology at San Jorge University. Accessible Zaragoza was aimed to create a collaborative online map that contributes to increase the autonomy of people with functional diversity and hence, their social integration and living standards. PEST Project is the project led by Tim Jones and Ben Spencer at Oxford Brookes University which aims to coproduce an indicators matrix to increase understanding of place-based policy and activity in relation to active travel in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.

I love learning, teaching and researching, as well as sharing and visualizing data, specially with maps. I have a technical and social background and my multiple research interests are centered around the commodifications between cities, technology and society within informationalism and free culture paradigm. So far, I have applied that approach on the topic of social and spatial inequities.
