The young and the city: crowdsourcing urban awareness in a developing country
Ruíz Correa, Salvador
Gatica Pérez, Daniel
"We present a crowdsourcing study that investigates impressions of urban spaces by young inhabitants in a city in the developing world. Our goal is to obtain collective perceptions from the actual inhabitants of the city under study, and more specifically youth (16-18 year-old) about issues like danger, accessibility, and dirtiness. We collect over 9000 judgments for 102 photos of outdoor urban spaces in a city in Central Mexico using standard scales in social sciences. We present reliability and response analyses and demonstrate how local youth can provide relevant urban insights in a crowdsourcing setting."
