Photo-mapping method developed here helps middle-schoolers i.d. neighborhood problems

There is a CALS connection to a recent feature on Madison’s WKOW-TV entitled “Crime from a kid’s perspective.” The story described how some middle-schoolers toured their neighborhood with a camera, taking photos of things that bothered them. CALS Ph.D. student Tzufen “Belle” Li worked on the project, which employed the “Participatory Photo-Mapping” method developed by Sam Dennis, Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture. Belle worked with colleagues from the UW population health institute and public health for Madison and Dane County. For more on participatory photo-mapping see
