INTERACT has developed a mixed methods toolkit comprised of: an online conceptual mapping process for capturing stakeholders’ perceptions of local context; a geographic information system (GIS) platform for documenting changes to urban form; and tools for measuring impacts on population health and wellbeing, specifically, online health and spatial survey questionnaires, wearable sensors including accelerometers and GPS, a smartphone app physical activity and mobility tracker, and qualitative interview guides. The tools in the INTERACT Toolkit are intended to be transferable to other study sites while remaining flexible enough to be adapted to local needs.
