Executable in a Day
― Chosen by Google
as 1 of 59 projects around the world to push the boundaries of what is possible for Google Geo Tools
I was determined to design a program that was fun, executable in a day and relevant to Hong Kong - Community Mapping was the result. It's simple - go out to take photos of community problems, map them on Google My Maps and share it.
The program quickly gained popularity among the local and international school community as well as local government. The project began to receive support funding and spun off into a Disneyland Hong Kong sponsored nature mapping program and an urban wildlife mapping program, local property developer - Link REIT. It was chosen in 2017 by Google as part of the Google Earth Education Advisory Board - to push the boundaries and explore what is possible for Google Geo Tools. The program has expanded in scale into a project called Rethinking Urban Space.
