Lo scopo di ‘Community Mapping’ è avviare un processo di scambio fra competenze e di convergenza fra abitanti, dove sia la comunità stessa a riconoscere e mappare le proprie sapienze come risorsa culturale per la convivenza, la trasformazione del territorio e la città intera.
‘Community Mapping’ è composto da cicli laboratoriali, che utilizzano strumenti creativi differenti sia nel processo e sia nelle restituzioni pubbliche con lo scopo di realizzare una mappatura di comunità in divenire.
Il primo ciclo di ‘Community Mapping’ si sviluppa tra maggio e dicembre 2013, con un laboratorio di mappatura audiovisiva del quartiere Giambellino-Lorenteggio. Tale laboratorio si propone di raccontare la polifonia interculturale del territorio, attraverso la composizione di percorsi audiovisivi e paesaggi sonori.
Al termine del laboratorio, i partecipanti sono invitati ad elaborare un prodotto audiovisivo e sonoro fruibile ai cittadini e a presentarlo al territorio all’interno di un evento cittadino.

They have made available an application program interface (API) for the site, which is a very useful thing indeed, according to my source in the geek community. With the API, users can create new tools for sorting and presenting the library’s materials. Combine it with a geolocation API, for example, and you could put together an application displaying the available photographs of the street you are on, organized decade by decade".
Museums and galleries should be using new technologies and media to teach, engage and immerse visitors in the art they are viewing, says Local Projects founder Jake Barton. Speaking at Wired 2012 about the future of cities, Barton explained how he was given the opportunity to help the Cleveland Museum of Art achieve this using touchscreens, live cameras and video, turning visitors into the curators of their own experience in the process.
