Space Engagers: Civic engagement through mapping

1:10pm Planning Studio 3, Richview, UCD

Space Engagers is a spin-out social enterprise from the EU FP7 TURAS project (2011-2016), which was led by UCD GPEP/APEP. This talk will (re)introduce the ideas of Patrick Geddes (1854-1932) on the Civic Survey and their contemporary application using ICT by Space Engagers. Pilot interactive mapping projects will be presented, such as Reusing Dublin, which crowd-sources data on vacant and underused properties for the Peter McVerry Trust.
