Stitching the city: From micro-data to macro-views
Research Project , 2018 – 2021

The project aims at establishing a transdisciplinary collaboration between the University of Pretoria, South Africa, and the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, to develop a methodological framework and digital platform for collection and sharing of non-traditional types of spatial, socio-economic data at a street- and precinct level. The framework and platform will be tested in two study areas: Mamelodi-East in the City of Tshwane, South Africa and Hammarkullen in Gothenburg, Sweden. These areas have been at the centre of investigation in both institutions and represent marginalised economic or segregated conditions. It is hoped that this collaboration will serve to capture such micro-data in order to share it among researchers from different disciplines to inform responsive urban, socio-economic transformation policies.
