Mit CitySwipe – einer Tinder-ähnlichen Anwendung – werden in Santa Monica (Kalifornien/USA) Bürger und Besucher an der Stadtplanung beteiligt.
City authorities are trying to gauge public opinion on everything from street furniture and parking, to murals and market stalls for their forthcoming urban plan, using a digital tool modelled on a dating app.
CitySwipe presents local residents with images of potential scenarios and simple yes/no questions, encouraging people to swipe through the options, as if assessing prospective partners. For the time being, it’s fairly basic: a photo of some street art appears with a caption asking: “Do you want more of this?” Folding cafe tables and chairs are shown next to pink park benches, asking: “Which do you prefer?”
Und so funktioniert CitySwipe:
Each slide will show an image and a question pertaining to a different element of Downtown. There are two different types of questions:
1. Yes or No Questions
(Swipe RIGHT for YES or LEFT for NO)
2. Which Do you Prefer?
(Swipe LEFT for the PHOTO ON THE LEFT or RIGHT for the PHOTO ON THE RIGHT)
If you have more to say about a certain question, please click the chat button on that question’s slide and leave us your comments. Then swipe to the next slide.
Your feedback will be incorporated into Downtown Santa Monica’s recommendations for the City of Santa Monica’s Downtown Community Plan. This plan will help guide the future of Downtown for the next 15 years. So please take a moment to share your thought with us, and have some fun!
