Extracting rich contextual information from study participants presents an interesting challenge when the expected results are uncertain. This article presents the design of a contextual geographic information system (GIS) to extract platial information from a multimodal data set (audio, video, and GPS) collected during a ‘think-aloud’ leisure walking study. WalkGIS enables transcriptions, labelling, and platial analysis to be performed within one system, with data being linked and coordinated to form linked video narratives.
