Drones for Participatory Planning with Flora Roumpani

In this recent video from AMD’s RADEON Creator series fellow CASA PhD candidate Flora Roumpani discusses her involvement in the UCL Development Planning Unit’s ReMap Lima project.

The project sought to map the favelas on the outskirts of Peru’s capital Lima in order to help the communities living there to better understand the planning challenges they face and more effectively participate in the informal local planning processes that tend rely on short term and hoc responses that risk creating new problems for every one solved.

The project involved flying drone’s over Lima and turning the captured data and imagery into digital maps and 3D models that could be used for further analysis and communication. By creating fly-through visualisations and 3D printed models that could be shared with the favela communities Flora helped them to better understand and respond to the problems they were facing.
