This project will address how to build more extensive and effective city dashboards. It will tackle three sets of fundamental problems: data issues; visualisation/interaction issues; and analytics/modelling issues. It will use the solutions to undertake applied research that significantly extends the Dublin Dashboard through the development and testing of a new suite of querying, modelling and prediction/simulation modules and novel forms of multimedia interaction, including virtual reality, the projection of data onto architectural models, and converting data into audio-textual forms. This testbed will provide a template to develop, implement and test a Cork Dashboard and influence dashboard development globally.



Artist Collaborations

The SFI funded project, Building City Dashboards, is pleased to announce collaborations with media artists Conor McGarrigle, Cordula Hansen, and Jeffrey Weeter to create digital artworks using open data from the Dublin and Cork dashboards (http://www.dublindashboard.ie/ and http://www.corkdashboard.ie). The goal of this initiative is to explore and expand multimodal creative expression in the digital space using open urban data and to extend the work of the dashboards' visualizations as well as the public impact of

The launch of the Cork Dashboard

  The Building City Dashboard’s team is excited to officially launch the Cork Dashboard on Friday December 15th in Cork. The Cork Dashboard will be the first major output from the Science Foundation Ireland funded project based here in the National Centre for Geocomputation, Maynooth University. Over the past year, we have been working alongside our partners in Cork Smart Gateway, Cork County Council and Cork City Council to gather static and real-time datasets for

The Dublin Dashboard provides citizens, public sector workers and companies with real-time information, time-series indicator data, and interactive maps about all aspects of the city. It enables users to gain detailed, up-to-date intelligence about the city that aids everyday decision making and fosters evidence-informed analysis.

Getting quite fancy on the WIP version of the new @DublinDashboard : Dublin Bikes trend data graphed with #dcjs, embedded in a #LeafletJS map popup. Data is called from #MongoDB via #ExpressJS API on a #NodeJS server. #webdev
