Cartographier les interstices de la ville (Strabic) | Information Mapping | Scoop.it

Parcourir la ville, la saisir en mouvement, et la restituer ensuite à travers une carte. Telle est la démarche de Mathias Poisson. Diplômé de l’École Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle (ENSCI/Les Ateliers), parallèlement à son travail de scénographe et interprète pour le théâtre et la danse, Mathias Poisson déploie un intérêt particulier pour la promenade et l’expérience subjective des lieux à travers plusieurs supports tels la carte, la visite guidée ou la performance.

The city in graphics

 

What is the average speed of traffic in the city? How many cultural events are going on? What are the levels of noise and what are people tweeting about? Answers to these and many other questions are featured and visualized in this dashboard of Amsterdam. Play and experiment with it, make different combinations and get to know the city real-time! 

 

 

 

How to use the City Dashboard

 

A city consists of many elements, shown on this dashboard as the following domains: transport, environment, statistics, economy, social, cultural & security. For each domain, the actual status is shown, based on blocks of 24 hours. The data is refreshed every 10 seconds. The information is captured in charts, graphs and on a map of the city. Larger dots and darker colors symbolize higher values and vice versa. On the map, you can choose which layers you want to see: from only one domain to interesting combinations and all of them together. Personalize what you are seeing and try to discover the city of Amsterdam on a whole new level!

Translating data into accessible information

 

Citizens and (government) agencies create and collect a lot of data, which they are now opening up for reuse more and more. This dashboard makes use of the latest open data from a wide range of municipal services. By using the Linked Data API from the CitySDK project , this City Dashboard becomes easily transferable to other cities using the same interface. The CitySDK Linked Data API also makes information searchable and available on demand, enabling developers to create applications such as this dashboard.

No data available?

We aim to display all the numbers, graphics and other results in this City Dashboard as readable as possible. Since this platform collects data from different kind of sources that otherwise are stored in multiple databases, it may happen that particular data isn't available for a moment. In that case the data source is interrupted."
