BUILDING CITY DASHBOARDS
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.READ MORE
The researcher will work on Work Package 2.2 Investigating scalar issues in visualisation. At present, most city dashboards are optimized to function best on a standard display screen. They will display on a smartphone or tablet, but in a way that is suboptimal in terms of legibility and coherence. This task will investigate scalar issues in how data are effectively visualised across different media and to use the resultant information to develop appropriate methods
We are pleased to announce five visiting positions to Maynooth University to work with the Programmable City and/or Building City Dashboards research teams located in the MU Social Sciences Institute and the National Centre for Geocomputation. We are particularly keen to host visitors with an expertise in urban data, data visualisation, augmented/virtual reality, media art and installations, and spatial analytics/modelling, either from a social theory or applied/technical perspective. It is anticipated that visitors would be
PROJECT OUTPUTSSee outputs
THE DUBLIN DASHBOARD
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.CLICK HERE
THE CORK DASHBOARD
The Cork Dashboard is currently being developed by our team and will build on lessons learned from Dublin.Coming soon
The dashboards below are not linked to this project however they show different examples of city dashboards internationally.
