Heat-related morbidity and mortality in manufactured and mobile home communities (MMHC) is a public health concern. To address the heat exposure and sensitivity of MMHC residents, high resolution and context-specific data are essential. Yet given the unusual tenure of ownership, and dynamic nature of residents, MMHC locations are not available everywhere, up to date, or at sufficient detail from publicly available sources. Our goal is to develop methods that leverage mapping crowdsourcing tools to fill the gap of heterogeneous and incomplete MMHC geospatial data. In this presentation, we evaluate how using MapSwipe—the Missing Maps crowdsourcing app—impacts the accuracy of MMHC geospatial data for use in heat resilience research.
