Food Are Here | 01SJ
Food Are Here is a mapping project that explores how mobile mapping technologies can be used in support of urban foraging. You may or may not realize it, but urban environments are home to edible fruits and vegetables that often go unnoticed and uneaten. Foragers have begun to take advantage of this food, finding and harvesting it for personal, professional, or charitable use. We want to know, how can technology – in particular mobile mapping – be used to support this community and practice? Ideally, what would this map look and act like? Furthermore, how can this research support the public participatory design of a map documenting other environmental issues like pollution and blight? Come with us out of the garage and into the world with some G1s in hot exploration of the answer(s).
