Urban Ethnography Maphack

The Universities of Salford and Manchester hosted a ‘map hack’ where people interested in urban ethnography put ethnographies about particular cities onto a Google map. This was a fun exercise to map urban ethnographies in cities across the world to create a freely available online resource.
