Abstract

The article examines the influence of geography and its potential for addressing the data-divide through the example of a facilitated VGI data collection initiative collected public health-related injury data in Cape Town, South Africa. It demonstrates that the emergency medical services personnel interacted with a GeoWeb interface to volunteer their informed opinions of high-incident injury locations. This study speaks to the growing influence of geography and one of its driving forces, the techno-social revolution in geospatial technology and data. Future work should continue to examine their potential to address the data-divide
