4.3.2 – How could your local area be improved?

Investigating the practicalities of the 15 minute city concept in your local area

By the end of this unit, you will be able to:

  • explain what is meant by the 15 minute city concept
  • consider the cities where the concept is starting to be applied, and the connection with digital data
  • appreciate the benefits of applying the concept
  • start to consider how it might be applied to your own local area

This section of the course develops the ideas contained in 4.3.1 for those who may want to approach this work at the EXPERT level.

Fieldwork is likely to be used as part of this module. Make use of tools such as Survey123 and ArcGIS Online to plot the findings and identify those open data which have been used.

Set up a form to begin with in Survey 123.

An example has been created to show how this might be done.
