Waterproofing Data: pilot study in Brazil
A pilot study for the Waterproofing Data project took place in Brazil this June. Researchers tested methods in study sites in Rio Branco and São Paulo, and explored the flood mitigation measures currently being taken by local authorities and citizens affected by flooding. School students also got involved in the workshop, learning how to digitally map their surrounding area and sharing their experiences of floods.
