Title: Interactive atlas of citizen habitability. (2012)
  • Author(s): Javier Fco. Raposo Grau, Atxu Amann Alcocer, Angelique Trachana.
  • Financial institution: Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. General Foundation of the Polytechnic University of Madrid
  • Summary: The objective of our initial proposal was the development of an interactive computer tool that would help citizens find, within a territory, the best physical and emotional place to live. It was intended to create a telematic platform for the generation and reception of information, based on participation, through which the individual looking for a dwelling, a workplace or any other need linked to space could access all the data necessary to develop your ideal personal landscape, to link your desires to a destination. – Once the evaluation of the proposal has been carried out, although the evaluation committee found positive aspects of the proposal, but the project did not reach a sufficient priority to be fully financed. He was assigned bridge help to be able to work on the project and present an improved proposal in a following call. However, part of the initial proposal was developed. -So this proposal was modified, in our 2012 request to better adapt to the profile of the research group (architects, experts in graphic ideation) excluding aspects of technological development. In this sense, we have sought to generate the technologically developable theoretical model with the supervision of the two new members of the group (experts in information technology and telecommunication respectively). This second proposal has been reduced in the development of the first phases of the initial project: 1. Establish an open list of parameters capable of defining, in the most complete way possible, the habitability of a city or a neighborhood and its conditions for citizen coexistence. 2. Analyze methodologies for recording and interrelationship of these parameters. 3. Explore visualization strategies. -We started to develop these early phases of the project identifying fields, parameters and variables for the generation of a database related to citizen desires. The search began by researching some 120 platforms filtered between platforms with greater interaction and participation with the intention of capturing what really matters to people in relation to their city. On these platforms a study was made by extracting a number of topics covered in each of them – from content directly related to the object of our research. Interactive platforms were discussed for both objective, statistical, geospatial and geographic data and direct user-provided data collection platforms. -Once the specific themes of each platform were extracted, the contents were organized into categories, subcategories and variables used and many more content could be extrapolated. In this way, a methodology for organizing urban information into a global and open classification structure has been created. And we have also studied various modes of data visualization on the network. -By developing this structure of urban information, we have been able to generate a theoretical reflection on the social and individual impact of the common use of telematics-interactive tools on the perception of the city and, consequently, on the improvement of conditions of habitability and coexistence thanks to interactivity and citizen participation. -Finally, as can be seen we have disseminated these theoretical conclusions by participating in a series of scientific competitions and specialized journals.
  • Abstract: The objective of our initial proposal was the development of an interactive computer tool that helps citizens to find, within a territory, the best physical and emotional place to live. It was intended to create a telematic platform for the generation and reception of information, based on participation, through which the individual seeking a dwelling, a workplace or any other need to be linked to the space could access all the necessary data elaborate to your ideal personal landscape, to link your desires to a destination. – Once the evaluation of the proposal was made, although the evaluation committee found positive aspects in it, but the project did not reach a sufficient priority to be fully funded. He was assigned a bridge help to be able to work on the project and present an improved proposal in a next call. However, part of the initial proposal was developed. -By this proposal was modified, in our request of 2012 to better adapt to the profile of the research group (architects, experts in graphic ide excludation) aspects of technological development. In this sense, we have tried to generate the technologically developed theoretical model with the supervision of the two new members of the group (experts in information technology and telecommunication respectively). This second proposal has been reduced in the development of the initial phases of the initial project: 1. Establish an open list of parameters capable of defining, as fully as possible, the habitability of a city or neighborhood and its conditions for coexistence citizen 2. analyzees of registration and interrelation of these parameters. 3. Explore visualization strategies. – We begin to develop these first phases of the project by identifying fields, parameters and variables for the generation of a database related to citizens' wishes. The search began by investigating some 120 platforms filtered between the platforms with the greatest interaction and participation with the intention of capturing what really matters to people in relation to their city. On these platforms, a study was made, extracting a series of addressed topics in each one of them -of contents directly related to the object of our research.. Interactive platforms of objective, statistical, geospatial and geographic data as well as direct data acquisition platforms provided by users were treated. -Once the specific topics of each platform were extracted, the contents were organized into into categories, subcategories and variables used and many more contents could be extrapolated. A methodology for organizing urban information in a global and open classification structure has been created in this way. And likewise we have different modes of data visualization in the network. -Elaborating this structure of urban information, we have been able to generate a theoretical reflection on the social and individual impact of the common use of telematic-interactive tools in the perception of the city and, consequently, in the improvement of the conditions of habitability and thanks coexistence in interactivity and citizen participation. -Finally, as you can see we have disseminated these theoretical conclusions by participating in a series of scientific competitions and specialized magazines.
