Hamish McNair is located at the University of Canterbury and supported by 43pl member Trimble. He is working on the Supply Chains project (P3.02). Hamish’s research centres on trusting crowdsourced spatial information throughout a spatial data supply chain. Hamish is investigating how crowdsourcing can be better integrated into processes that utilise spatial information. This research seeks to engage people in more than simply the collection of data so that local knowledge can more directly influence decision-making processes. His current focus is on incorporating local perspective in planning processes by spatially arranging users’ observations and opinions on cycle infrastructure performance.
