Mapping the Inclusive City: Participatory Mapping and Design Thinking

Activiteit: Professional or public presentationProfessional


The research project "Mapping the Inclusive City" developed an interactive map for data collection, using smartphone-based technology and geospatial tools like ArcGIS, that allows wheelchair users in Groningen (the Netherlands) to assess accessibility in the city. The project used participatory methods and the design thinking process to develop the map in collaboration with clients at 's HeerenLoo, a care and housing facility for people with disabilities, as co-researchers. The project engaged co-researchers in the different stages of the research. This presentation focussed on the strengthens of participatory mapping through design thinking as an iterative process of co-designing a tool for data collection centred on its users.
