Citizen Data Lab

Mapping, empowerment and data awareness

We address local issues through participatory data practices: methods, approaches and tools for co-creation to learn about and through data.

The Citizen Data Lab is based at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, faculty of Digital Media and Creative Industries. As a research lab, we bring together researchers, designers, developers, artists, issue experts, citizens and students.

Participatory Mapping
We develop tools and methods for the collaborative collection and analysis and interpretation of data. Our methods leverage contextual and tacit knowledge as well as expert knowledge of participants to build a nuanced, inclusive and shared understanding of data produced in a local context.

Community Empowerment
We develop open source tools and methods, and disseminate insights to strengthen local bottom-up initiatives. Our aim is to help communities create long term positive impact on the neighborhoods of Amsterdam and the city as a whole.

Data Awareness
We build tools, methods, design objects and art works to learn about the role and impact of data in our society. We share our tools and publications to empower communities and individuals alike.

Themes for 2018-2019: We will apply and further these participatory data practice in two large research projects around the Energy Transition and Urban Nature.
