VibeMaps
David Braha & Kevin Chung
Parsons School of Design, Urban Design (BS); Partner

VibeMaps is a project that zooms into the unique sights, smells and sounds of urban neighborhoods in ways that no current map platform has yet to tackle; we want to be the source of discovery for contributors to market their own thoughts about what makes their local neighborhoods unique, ultimately creating an entirely new set of data that strongly impacts housing choice and location preference.

We want to generate a online mapping platform and work directly with locals and developers to create an open and common digital center for dialogue that increases the public visibility of unique-yet-undiscovered neighborhoods in urban areas; this would involve geolocation technology and a digital map layer that logs and records such observations and display them in a visually-friendly manner. An example map can be currently found online at www.vibemaps.com.
