MappingAME is one of the research lines developed in the Urban Design and Regional Planning Unit of the University of Alicante.

It focuses on  the study of urban dynamics using open data from location based social networks and other web services. 

Our research aims to explore the scope of application of open virtual data in the discipline of Urban Studies.

Through the development of cartographies using geolocated data we describe and explain urban dynamics of cities within the context of the European Mediterranean Arc. Useful and often hidden information is revealed  about the social behaviour and physical reality of cities.

MappingAME is commited to collaboration and knowledge exchange with researchers or organizations to achieve a better understanding of the urban phenomenon.
