How should Prague change? People can put their ideas and comments on the emotional map – ČT24 – Czech Television
The results from the map are used by the city, individual town halls, but also its organizations, such as the Technical Administration of Roads (TSK) or the city police. Among other things, Prague 10 has experience with a similar project. “We used it (map) a year and a half ago to create a sustainable development plan for Prague 10. We obtained useful data where people feel good, where they would invite a visit, or vice versa they do not feel safe, which also served the police, “said the mayor of Prague 10 Renata Chmelová (Vlasta).
Experience is also used by other regions
Unlike previous municipal applications, which focus on reporting acute problems, such as potholes in roads or fallen branches, the emotional map targets long-term topics and problems. In terms of scope, she was in Prague for the first time in the Czech Republic, said Radka Švíková, who is the manager of the National Network of Healthy Cities, which wants to use her experience in other regions after the pilot project in Prague.
It is not yet clear when the suggestions will begin. It will depend on their nature and also on how many people will be involved in the project. “We would like to have the data processed by the end of the year, and then we will pass it on to individual organizations. Then it will depend on the nature of the stimulus, how quickly it can be found out, “said Zábranský.
For example, problems with places for the disabled can be resolved quickly; on the contrary, measures to increase security are taking longer, says Prague councilors.
