Coding community: Geographic information technologies and mappings of the city street

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of presenting 'Coding Community' at the American Geographical Society Library at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, hosted by the Department of Geography.  This presentation, based on my research while at the University of Washington, discusses the limits of quality-of-life indicators in mobile technology mapping projects for neighborhood revitalization.

I really appreciated my interactions with graduate students and faculty, and look forward to continued opportunities to engage with their research, hopefully at the upcoming Critical Geographies conference, hosted by UWM, facilitated by Anne Bonds, Ryan Holifield, Kristin Sziarto, et al.


  1. Fascinating, implications for coding our dynamic as well as our static urban features. We are trying to find better ways to collect and represent auto crash data and problematic areas for bike/ped interactions with engineered facilities and urban actors. It would be wonderful to have citizen-collected PDA data to mark bike / walking routes in accordance with cleanliness and safety. Our local city leaders' agendas would have to sit on the sidelines and listen to our real ground-level experience.
