Live Where It’s Most Scenic With Mapumental
Mapumental is an online application that will help people understand the best places to live. Funded by Channel 4’s 4ip in the UK, this service is currently in private beta – but this video shows how the system works. It has taken various data points to help Londoners understand where they can live if they want to commute to work in a certain time. The map produced can be altered depending on house prices and also with how beautiful people think the area is. The narrator says that they’ve asked people to rate images from areas on how ‘scenic’ it appears (through Mechanical Turk, we’d guess/hope??).
