Crowdsourced, open data is often seen as inherently problematic for researchers, primarily because of the inevitable subjective biases that occur when contributors are self-selected.
Réka uses data from mySociety’s street fault reporting service FixMyStreet to reframe those biases as a useful route into understanding people’s subjective experiences with their environments.
TICTeC supports the mission of the non-profit mySociety by bringing together practitioners, commentators, academics and funders to debate, network, and share research and knowledge in the civic tech field.
