Exploring People's Emotional Bond with Places in the City: A Pilot Study

  This paper outlines a thesis that seeks to understand how people's experiences of places in the urban environment that are meaningful to them on a personal level, and in particular their stories and emotions connected to those personally significant places, could potentially inform the design of future technological devices and services. This urban HCI study aims to investigate the different forms this data could take, and the potential for sharing and exploring this personal data with other people using emotion maps. In this paper we introduce the methodology designed to this end, and report on some of the findings of our initial pilot study.
