The Virtual City Explorer (VCE) is a tool designed for European Municipalities which need to generate mobility infrastructure maps of static items located in town, such as bike racks, parking spots for disabled people, or road signs. The VCE adopts a crowdsourced approach, involving voluntary mappers or crowdworkers who are required to virtually explore interactive panoramas of real cities, making use of technologies like Google Street View, looking for items with specific target characteristics to be annotated and reported. The combined effort of the independent mappers allows the creation of annotated maps to be consulted by municipalities or integrated as part of human-machine hybrid systems.
