ICT: Sharing Visions of the City

This theme explores the relationship and role that digital media can have in the representation and experience of urban spaces and places. 
Web-based and geo-social applications are transforming our understanding and interactions that can occur in contemporary urban spaces. We continue to discover opportunities for integrating physical and digital places in ways that connect and enable meaningful engagement between the variety of spaces/places in which we live today.
As a result of the changes introduced by the network and social media, at least two questions become relevant: First, groups of people can communicate more quickly and more easily than in the past, promoting and sharing use of the city and lifestyles (through ICT); In second place, this type of information can result of some use to designers and planners in preparing housing solutions.

The connection between innovative techniques of representation and communication possibilities given by the social networks allow the creation of images, easy to communicate, easy to understand, and ultimately more immediate to share.
