Abstract

The objective of this work is to build a Volunteered Geographic Information System (VGIS) using a methodological design process. The VGIS design focuses on coordinating its three main components—project (organization), participants (community), and technological infrastructure—by aligning the project goal, crowdsourcing strategy and participation environment, the drivers and mechanisms that motivates volunteers, and the technological and data management tools that facilitate engaged participation. Following this process helped to design a solution based on the project’s information requirements to handle a road data tagging task, while offering an experience that meets the interests and needs of potential participants.
Keywords: volunteered geographic information; crowdsourcing; citizen engagement; system design; data tagging; road data volunteered geographic information; crowdsourcing; citizen engagement; system design; data tagging; road data
