Place Pulse Crowdsources Our Understanding Of Urban Spaces
A new urban interface uses social reaction to judge urban spaces, creating a new experience of city life.
Inspired by Kevin Lynch’s ‘Image Of The City,’ Place Pulse attempts to bring a more collaborative element into the way we perceive our cities. By crowdsourcing brief surveys and utilizing Google Maps, the project, developed at the MIT Media Lab by the Macro Connections group, aims to gain a greater understanding of the collective processes that potentially create the perceptions we have of cities.
