Abstract

Checking-in various venues in our surrounding environment via location-based apps like foursquare is becoming more and more popular, this behaviour makes people share some 'bits' of their location with their friends. Exploiting this trend in a Human Computation fashion to collect information about urban environments is the aim of the Urbanopoly Android app - a social, mobile and location-based Game with a Purpose designed around the idea of the 'monopoly' board game. In this paper, we illustrate the main design choices for Urbanopoly - including the use of social media like Facebook in the context of a Human Computation approach - and we explain the game play. © 2012 IEEE.
