Project Description:
Inspired by Christian Nold's Biomapping project, this processing applet developed by Tom Carden is a visualisation of GPS data from people walking on the Greenwich peninsula (London, UK). The height of the mesh is a measure of GSR (Galvanic Skin Response, related to stress levels) at that point. As Tom Carden explains: "since I didn't split out the individual walks from the sample data this shouldn't really be considered an accurate map of stress in Greenwich!".

The Bio Mapping project allows the wearer to record their Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is a simple indicator of emotional arousal in conjunction with their geographical location. This can be used to plot a map that highlights point of high and low arousal. By sharing this data one can construct maps that visualise where a community might feel stressed and excited.
