UrbanDig Project employs qualitative research methods in order to collect stories and material from multiple actors (communities, locals, experts, authorities, visitors, etc.). The main goal is to create a rich pool of data, while introducing alternative ways of data-mining and story-telling. Each project invites a research community to reveal different aspects of a place, a book, an idea, a story. The UrbanDig Toolkit is being enriched during every project, keeping its transferable and flexible character.
