Digital Story Mapping: Using iPads to Document and Explore Las Cruces Area Parks

Physical activity is crucial to counter childhood obesity. Children from the Boys & Girls Club of Las Cruces teamed up with NMSU nursing students to develop an interactive story map to understand the connection between health and the physical environment. Children identified parks as places to engage in physical activity. Using Geographic Information Systems and a mobile data collection platform for the iPad, the team visited parks where children took pictures and described them. A survey was also used to gather more data from among their peers on where they go and what children do for physical activity. Their data was uploaded to an interactive map and nursing students added a qualitative narrative. This presentation will describe the process, present the map, and review lessons learned.
