Place Pulse ~ Crowdsourced Urban Evaluations

Check out Place Pulse, a new project by Media Lab colleagues Phil Salesses, Anthony DeVincenzi, and César Hidalgo to...
"...generate evaluative maps of cities from crowdsourced questions. Use it to identify preferences within a population or to find similar areas between two cities. [...] Place Pulse allows the creation of comparative studies in which both cities and its neighborhoods can be contrasted and compared. Place Pulse is a tool that helps improve our society’s ability to measure our urban environments, and can provide valuable feedback for the design and evolution of current and future cities."
