Character / User
Who is going to use our design/technology? Make a drawing of your character/user.
1: ON SITE NGO VOLUNTEER
Volunteers who have basic digital literacy could aid in the cartography exercise
2. TEENAGE/ ADOLESCENT INHABITANTS
Young and physically able inhabitant who could benefit from learning/ contributing to the cartography exercise.
He/ She can be empowered with potential knowledge gained from this exercise to help the community
AIM OF DESIGN:
create a device that will allow the individual to map out their immediate area for their own usage. The map can be used to a mean of reference to themselves and serves as tool possibly for:
- Mapping out new developments of their immediate area
- To be able to use see their 'site' e.g. if they would like to create a patch of gardening - they can use the map to plan out their site

Each section of the refugee camp is managed by a different WASH group

Cox's Bazar: Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Assessment: Dry Season Follow-up Report, May 2019 - Bangladesh
Since August 2017, an estimated 743,000 Rohingya refugees have arrived in Bangladesh's Cox's Bazar District from Myanmar. Adding to existing caseloads of refugees from previous displacements in 1978, 1991, and 2016, this has brought the total number of Rohingya residing in Bangladesh to approximately 913,000.1As of 31 August 2019, 735,000 refugees reside in the Kutupalong-Balukhali Extension Site in Ukhiya Upazila, with an additional 171,000 individuals living in smaller camps in Teknaf Upazila.
COMMENTS FROM THE GUEST SPEAKERS
- Look at the stakeholder structure of the community - see which stakeholders to be in sync with your topic
- Consider looking at GIS technology
- Digital Literacy - most young inhabitants can use smartphones
- Small number of individuals can used laptops
- Inhabitants have a general understanding of there location/whereabouts, 'a sense' - not officially documented
This page is under development, feel free to add! Lead image from http://publiclab.org/notes/gclout01/07-22-2013/pole-mapping-rig-making Pole mapping is fun and easy to do! Perfect for small areas, like urban lots or gardens. You can be very creative about what to use for a pole and how to attach your camera. These people sure were!
3 detailed sketches of your design and technology
Produce an adaptable pole structure to aid in aerial photography for mapmaking by any inhabitant capable of using a smartphone
TOTAL SPAN LENGTH OF POLE STRUCTURE : 2.5 - 4m approx (subject to change)
LENGTH OF PVC POLE MODULE: 0.5m (TBC)
Clarity and visibility of structure is vital due to the length and verticality of the structure.
Choice of color determined by availability in color of the main PVC plastic material

Video Prototype role-playing (1 minute)
09.10.2020 - Comments from the Saiba + Moury
- Too technical - need to understand the literacy rate of the refugees
- Objects such these maybe better benefit the NGOs - individuals who maybe more digitally literate
- However the the NGOs already have sophisticate technology to execute the mapping they need - therefore 'how useful will be this contribution?'
Prototype 2 - Process and Development
29/10/2020 - Zoom meeting with Mouhsine:
- the possiblity of GPS as a communication
- Resolution of images e.g. Comparing heights of image taking
- Satellite vs this scale of image rn of go pro
- Importance of constant height for photographing
- Freedom to solution and implementation - educating the user
- Do not limit to just students as the user - can be used by Ngos/ technically liteate
- Importance of height and sensor devices for tracking location
- Look for non - standard data processing images
- Look for new options to process the images
- 'Masters of bamboo' - 6m bamboo is available already
- if using bamboo - just immediately erect it straight
- addition of spirit level on the bamboo (also educating students), adding precision
- potentially a compass? be able to orient the location
- bamboo very light - not difficult to comment
- added value to the design
PRESENTING THE DESING
- Argue for the advantages of small scale mapping(camersa)
- understand that this is innovation, its okay if its speculative
- but when presenting - show the added value of taking maps like this
- What is the value of small scale but high resolution imaging?
- will add value if the accuracy and precision and resolution is providing something that e.g. the satellites will not?
- test it out precision between this device's image vs the satellite images
- The argument of educational purpose - teaching skill, for the refugees to do things i.e. connecting the mapping the to everyday life
- Landsliding as an issue to explore via this device:
- a potential area for the camera pole can be an advantage
INSTRUCTIONS/ PROTOTYPE 2
PROTYPE 2 IDEA
- The charging of digital devices - steady power supply source and charging equipment
- Making of pole structure - tools i.e. saw/ drill?
How to build the structure / PROTYPE 2
To help you manage your project, I suggest using a simple project management system like a Kanban/Trello board. Don't forget to
- Be specific with the task. Link to the source
- Assign one person per task. Of course, you can collaborate, but one person is responsible for the completion of one task
- Deadline. So that your team can coordinate and nothing falls between the cracks.
What should be the INSTRUMENTS required to maintain the
