Data Walking is an ongoing research project exploring the potential of walking to gather data on the urban environment and then through multiple walks and visualisations build a rich picture of that area, acknowledging the plural understandings and experiences of the urban environment. The project examines technology and tools for creative data gathering and experimenting with data visualisation, gain insight, and share knowledge, supporting civic participation and enquiry. Data Walking is a participatory and collaborative project, working with participants on walks and through creating visualisations, the project aims to engage participants on issues relevant to our communities, and empower those communities with new skills and tools to create new knowledge and new tools. Data Walking can be conducted anywhere and examines the local while being global in reach through sharing practices and data across the internet.
