YourGround Key Points
- You don't need to leave your home to drop a pin anywhere on the map
- Completely anonymous
- Does not identify you or your location - only the anonymous pin on the map
- Data will be collated to provide Councils with insights to improving safety and providing more inclusive and equitable public spaces across the City of Casey.
The City of Casey has partnered with Monash University’s XYX Lab and digital consultancy CrowdSpot, to launch a new safety mapping tool for our local community.
The new online interactive map titled 'YourGround' allow women and gender-diverse people in Casey who are 18 years and older, to share their perceptions of safety regarding Casey's streets, parks, trails and recreational spaces.
The map will crowdsource the data, allowing users to anonymously drop a pin, tell a story or share an experience while out and about in the community. The data will then provide Council with insights regarding how we can make Casey’s public spaces more inclusive, safer and equitable.
City of Casey is proud to join with some 20 Councils also taking part in this truly community-led initiative.
