The recent technology trends of crowd-sourcing/sensing and location-based social networking have reignited citizen engagement, opening new perspectives for cost-effective ways of making local communities and cities more sustainable. This project will develop optimal strategies for citizen involvement in monitoring urban space, reporting issues and improving accountability of a city’s response by increasing the usability of multimedia data collection through automated context recognition and optimally designing crowd-sensing campaigns in location-based social networks.
