“MIGRATE – MIGRation pATtterns in Europe” is a Web mapping application, developed with a gamification approach using open data. The purpose is to educate the players on the migration phenomenon in Europe and consequently raise their awareness. A second goal is to derive insights related to the perception of migration by analyzing the collected data. The development of the application is funded by the third call of MYGEOSS project (http://digitalearthlab.jrc.ec.europa.eu/mygeoss/info_thirdcall.cfm) by the European Commission – JointResearch Center (JRC). Playing the trivia game (http://geomobile.como.polimi.it/migrate/game/) requires free and anonymous registration, during which nickname, password, gender, age, country of origin and education level are asked. Each game is composed of six migration-related questions and to answer each question limited time (30 seconds) is given. All the data sources used to generate the questions (http://geomobile.como.polimi.it/migrate/data/) are available under the conditions of full and open access. The profiles of the players, the questions and the answers are stored in a database to be analyzed. The analysis is made to observe how the perceptions change based on the players’ profiles and the general accuracy of the perception. The data collected are made available to download under the CC BY license. The application is developed using only free and open source software, such as Django, PostgreSQL and OpenLayers 3.

Abstract

“MIGRATE – MIGRation pATtterns in Europe” is a Web mapping application, developed with a gamification approach using open data. The purpose is to educate the players on the migration phenomenon in Europe and consequently raise their awareness. A second goal is to derive insights related to the perception of migration by analyzing the collected data. The development of the application is funded by the third call of MYGEOSS project (http://digitalearthlab.jrc.ec.europa.eu/mygeoss/info_thirdcall.cfm) by the European Commission – JointResearch Center (JRC). Playing the trivia game (http://geomobile.como.polimi.it/migrate/game/) requires free and anonymous registration, during which nickname, password, gender, age, country of origin and education level are asked. Each game is composed of six migration-related questions and to answer each question limited time (30 seconds) is given. All the data sources used to generate the questions (http://geomobile.como.polimi.it/migrate/data/) are available under the conditions of full and open access. The profiles of the players, the questions and the answers are stored in a database to be analyzed. The analysis is made to observe how the perceptions change based on the players’ profiles and the general accuracy of the perception. The data collected are made available to download under the CC BY license. The application is developed using only free and open source software, such as Django, PostgreSQL and OpenLayers 3.
