Our Outdoors is a citizen science project which aims to find out more about what you and others experience when you are in public spaces such as parks, beaches, canals, and town squares. It was developed by researchers in the Scottish Collaboration of Public Health Research and Practice (SCPHRP) at the University of Edinburgh in partnership with Sustrans, the MRC and citizens like yourself. The app itself runs on the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform.
The objectives of the project are to help you and/or your community understand:
· Which public spaces give people feelings of well-being and which do not
· Whether public outdoor spaces affect people’s wellbeing differently
· Whether changes to the outdoor spaces (such as planting trees, putting in paths) result in people feeling better in them
By taking part in the research you will contribute will contribute to a national database, which will be used to rate and improve outdoor spaces across the country. The data can be used to create maps, reports and research for citizens, researchers and policy makers alike, to better understand how shared public spaces contribute to the health of communities and which need improving.
New feature: calculation of your spot rating based on your inputs is now included in the detail view ob entries
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
