Abstract

In this demo project we explore quantifiable data engendered by emergent geoplay games as a source, to research the use of urban green space impacts on in health and well-being. By the establishing of an emergent geogame built on a GPS dependent interface for smartphones, one facilitates diverse and unanticipated behavior that produce digital data by movements, actions according to the rules, and documentation. The research will involve the exploration of the empirical data produced by play in green urban spaces in accordance to the core concepts of spatial information, fun and well-being.
