Together with Michael Glass from Urban Studies Pittsburgh we got published
our research about gentrification in Pittsburgh Lawrenceville neighbourhood
in Journal of geography in Higher Education. Contact me if you cant access
the full paper and are interested in reading it.

Abstract: Mobile technology is increasingly widespread in geographic
instruction, raising questions about how to integrate and analyse data from
multiple users. Collector for ArcGIS allows researchers to gather
multi-sensory field data, and is therefore a prospective way to integrate
qualitative and quantitative information. We evaluate students’ experience
using Collector in an exercise that considered the senses of place in a
research neighbourhood. Collector proved somewhat effective, yet requires
significant technical expertise to integrate into research assignments. We
describe the strengths and weaknesses of mobile applications such as
Collector, and provide solutions for faculty interested in mobile
applications for the field-based capture of multi-sensory data.
