Description

Taking Open Data to the Streets: Soil & Air
Tatiana Morin | Urban Soils Institute
Bitsy Bently | Creative Researcher
Michelle Jackson | Seeds to Soil@ Prime Produce

In this workshop, participants will learn how to take to the streets armed with a mobile phone and collect data that will complement existing open data to build a story about the soil and air in our communities. We can use the information we collect to ask questions that will propel ideas, solutions and the implementation of these solutions. The workshop will cover the basics of web form design for data collection as well as techniques for interacting with data on a mobile device. Participants will use their phones heavily, so please bring a charging cord. This is the first workshop in the USI Workshop Series 2019 following the 2018 Symposium on urban soils: remediation, restoration, rehabilitation, regeneration, recovery, resilience, renew, re-learn, respect. As the USI begins to build the Data Depository and Exchange, we believe that it is important to understand the data needs of the communities of this city. This workshop will also provide USI with community feedback on how best to collect useable, useful data that can help answer questions, and implement solutions.
