Shmapped

Can you help map the good things about Sheffield to help improve the cities spaces? The Universities of Derby and Sheffield and the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust are inviting Sheffield residents aged over 18 years old to take part in a project to map the good things about Sheffield’s green and built spaces.
The project uses an app called ‘Shmapped’ as in ‘Sheffield mapped’ to try and understand how urban living affects our wellbeing, help people enjoy their surroundings, and help our town planners design better spaces.
To take part, download the free Shmapped app from your app store, answer a few questions about your wellbeing, Shmapped then prompts you once a day to notice the good things about your surroundings. You can take notes, photos and Shmapped will map the locations of your good things. After using Shmapped for 30 days, you answer the same questions from the start of the study.
The first 1000 Sheffield residents to complete the study can be entered into a prize draw to win vouchers from £50-500 with a 1 in 10 chance of winning. More information can be found here. We are planning a series of events and walks with the Wildlife Trust to share Shmapped if you would like us to organise one of these for your community, or if you would like posters/leaflets to promote the study in your organisation please get in touch (k.mcewan@derby.ac.uk).
