Bio Maps is another step of taking the world as people see it and experience it and placing those thoughts and feelings on to a map. The bio-mapping tool allows the user to record their emotional arousal by way of measuring their galvanic skin response in tandem with tracking their location. What results is a very personalized emotional map of a geographic setting.

If you are hoping for a tidy map using hypsometric tints to indicate emotional response, think again. This is a very subjective marking up of the neighbourhood (e.g. “The Dreaded Crossing,” “I want ot go window shopping,” or “Didn’t realize the hosptial was so big.”) supplemented with hotlinks to photographs. A fine example of this off the cuff, community type mapping is the Greenwich Emotion Map. The site provides a kmz viewable in Google Earth.
