As well as GIS we have been exploring some other methods of determining a working area. My personal attempts involved a foray into Wordle and going back over the material collected at the exhibition. Here is the fruits of feeding all the answes from our question “What area of the City do you think needs more love?” This is just taking all the text from people’s answers (approx 150 answers) and using the lovely application at www.wordle.net/create. The application then shows you which words show up with most frequency in the word cloud.
So, Smithfield and Thomas St appear to be our most popular answers!!
