Faculty Scott Truex and Lohren Deeg will share My Town: A Mobile App for Community Inventory and Analysis. The app will allow students and citizens to capture qualitative inventory and analysis by capturing imagery that exemplifies community character and quality of place. The developers designed the app to utilize the existing features of cellular network-enabled mobile devices, including geospatial mapping, global positioning and proximity markers, and the built-in camera. The app's thumbs up/down option, hierarchy of tags, and comments will yield tremendous insight for planners, while opening the discussion on community planning to a broader audience.
