Urban Planet: Participatory Mapping


Urban Planet is a daily roundup of  blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.

The City Fix examines the practice of participatory mapping – a consultation method that involves citizens in the spatial planning of their cities. From identifying common cycling routes in Moscow to group gatherings to sew a map of Bushwick, planners and citizens are pulling together to capture information and inform plans in creative ways.
