Place and City

Place and City

Here we present a spatial web based survey for participating citizens in a city. It is on civic amenities and municipal activities from the citizens perspective. It lets one select the municipal region in a city, residency duration, and the topics of concern. The survey asks to enter the matters of significance for you.

Then it lets one draw on a map of the region the exact area of concern and significance. There are facilities for drawing spatial regions, lines and points on a map. The survey then allows one to rate the area of concern on a pre-defined scale. It puts the ratings into categories of place identity, place attachment and place dependence. The survey takes into account the associations of the participant in that place.

Once an area is drawn on the map some questions are asked for that area. Based on the answers received the survey creates some sense of places, attaching likes or dislikes towards places. This creates groups of respondents with similar responses who might share common expectations about a place of their concern.
