WeSense is an environmental perception project led by the Urban Landscape Architecture Research Group at Delft University of Technology.

The goal is to generate insights on people’s perception of urban environments and what effects these surroundings have on them, using a mobile app.

The pilot stage of the project is run in Amsterdam, as part of the AMS (Amsterdam Metropolitan Solutions) initiative.
