Abstract

A number of local governments, businesses, and research institutions have discussed the usefulness and importance of "green networks" in recent years. However, most green sites are still perceived as isolated distributed patches, thereby potentially leading to their underuse and little awareness of their importance. We propose Green Weaver, a participatory system that can visualize connections of green sites based on crowdsourcing. The system combines existing green maps, participatory apps, and smartphone-based image capture tools to visualize "green networks" and support the awareness of connected green sites in the neighborhood, thereby potentially accelerating citizencentered "green networking" in the neighborhood.
