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.



3D Data Hack and the release of the Dublin Docklands 3D Model as Open Data

Last month Dublin held its first 3D Data Hackathon over the weekend of the 11th and 12th of May 2019. The 3D model of the Dublin Docklands SDZ (Strategic Development Zone) that provided the core dataset for the event has now been released to the public as open data on Dublin’s Open Data portal Dublinked.   These events are the culmination of a process which began at the end of August 2018 with the release

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

It enables users to gain detailed, up-to-date intelligence about the city that aids everyday decision making and fosters evidence-informed analysis.
