"This project is part of LandSense which is about crowdsourcing data to monitor landscape change. Green urban areas are becoming increasingly important and we want to find out how to measure their quality by asking park users themselves."
"Some people really enjoyed the app and giving their opinion in this way, other people wanted more space to say what they think."
"This year was a pilot in the Rembrandtpark, which is due for renovations. We wanted to test the concept that such information can be collected with new technologies and can help inform spatial planning processes."
"I also did interviews in the park to be able to test whether the app respondents and their opinions are representative of Rembrandtpark users. From this it seems that some people are still distrustful of such technologies, and/or think that it will not have any effect on decision making."
