Checking-in various venues in our surrounding environment via location-based apps like foursquare is becoming more and more popular; this behaviour makes people share some “bits” of their location with their friends. Exploiting this trend in a Human Computation fashion to collect information about urban environments is the aim of the Urbanopoly Android app - a social, mobile and location-based Game with a Purpose designed around the idea of the “monopoly” board game.
