Fox Valley Thrives (FVT), an alliance of public health, planners, faith-based community organizers, and others, recently gathered stories and photos from residents impacted by limited access to transportation. FVT partnered with University of Wisconsin Oshkosh faculty to engage these residents in a photomapping project, where participants took geo-tagged photos of aspects of the built environment that make getting from point A to point B by walking, bicycling or using transit easier or more difficult. This panel will overview the process used to engage those who use active transportation, lessons learned about the process, and strategies used to present data collected.
