Abstract

We propose a particular approach by which computer science can aid on the technological side of sustainable development, which at the same time contributes to raising people's awareness of the issues at hand. In particular we develop a so-called community memory for urban environmental measurement surveys, focusing on noise, microclimate and atmospheric pollution. Our goal is to gather data both in a quantitative way, using participatory mobile sensing, and in a qualitative way, by social tagging. In this way we provide a method for environmental monitoring which is complementary to current modelling approaches.
