Compared to traditional data sources such as government data, crowd-sourced data provides so far unavailable information on identification, perception/emotion and social interaction. Yet, fundamentally new approaches are required to map, visualize, and analyze its undiscovered patterns as well as to explore implications for professions working with people and the real environment.

This interdisciplinary presentation will introduce knowledge on how to work with this kind of data source, present three different views from related professions, as well as in-depth discussion of key questions.

Please join the lecture and discussion with:

Aaron Straup Cope, design technologist, Stamen Design
Alexander Dunkel, landscape architect, UT Dresden, doctorate candidate
German Aparicio, founder of informedCITIES, adjunct professor CCA Architecture

Mona El Khafif, associate professor CCA Architecture, coordinator URBANlab
