A new academic project that aims to crowd source what citizens like about cities and what makes them happy. It is being undertaken by Cambridge University’s Computing Laboratory. And will ask visitors to the site to compare views and judge which they like best. The data will then be analysed to build up a picture.

The website has categories for quiet places, happy places and beautiful places.
Other related happiness projects include the Mappiness app from LSE researchers which maps places in the UK where people are happiest. http://www.mappiness.org.uk/
