This diagnostic tool is useful for gaining a better understanding of how residents see the city. It is also useful for communicating about the diagnosis and the initiative in public spaces and with other stakeholders (politicians/landlords) in the form of an exhibition. The shared resource describes the photodialogue diagnostic methodology used by the UFI Dakar. This methodology is particularly useful in a context of language barriers.

Firstly, it combines different methods of collecting urban data, such as exploratory walks, paper questionnaires and interviews with experts. The data collected is combined with a set of photographs of the area, and an initial analysis is used to generate hypotheses about local expectations and desires in terms of public spaces. These hypotheses were then put to a group of local residents at photodialogue visual validation workshops.
