DescriptionThis dataset maps the location of anti-social graffiti around the University of Edinburgh’s central campus. The data was collected over a 2 week period between the 19th May and the 2nd June 2014. The data was collected using a smartphone through an app called Fieldtrip GB (http://fieldtripgb.blogs.edina.ac.uk/). Multiple asset collectors were deployed to use a pre-defined data collection form which allowed users to log the following attributes: Date / Name of asset collector / Type of graffiti (image/tag/words/advert/…..) / What the graffiti was on (building/wall/lamppost/….) / What medium was used (paint/paper/chalk/….) / Density of graffiti / Photograph / Location. The data is by no means complete and realistically captured only around 50% of the graffiti in the study area. It is hoped that this dataset will be updated every 3 months to chart the distribution of graffiti over time. data was collected using the app Fieldtrip GB Once collected, data from multiple asset collectors was merged in FtGB’s authoring tool and exported as a CSV file. This was then imported into QGIS and saved as a vector dataset in ESRI Shapefile format. GIS vector data. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2014-06-06 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-22.
