Investigating privatised space with n0tice.comPosted: June 14, 2012
The Guardian news team is using n0tice.com for its latest crowdsourced investigation – identifying those spaces which are open to the public but are actually private property.
Reporter Jeevan Vasagar explains:”We’re asking readers to add to our map of privatised public spaces in Britain.
“For the purposes of this project, we are not looking at enclosed shopping malls – only open spaces, from streets and city squares to village greens, beaches and riverbanks, where there’s a reasonable expectation that the space might be public.”
The interactive map updates with information entered by users on the noticeboard www.privatepublicspace.n0tice.com.
This is the latest example of feeding a noticeboard into a map – for other examples check out the portfolio at n0tice.org.
