Walking the Sky

Following the principles of Grassroots Mapping, the workshop will show people how to create their own aerial photographs using kites and balloons. These will then be taken out onto the streets and around Guimarães, providing a spectacle as well as mapping data and aerial imagery.

Walking the Sky


All of the work produced will be documented and presented on a dedicated website. This will include making available all of the raw data gathered, attributed and made available for further work. It will combine the map data gathered into a range of visualisations and dedicated maps.
