Data City

Data City is an interactive installation that features data visualisations projected onto 3D printed scale models of Dublin and Cork cities. The models are 3.5m x 2m in size with accurate topography at a scale of 1:2000 yielding a representation of 28 sq km  of terrain in each model. Data visualisations are exactly aligned with the model in a process called  projection mapping. Visualisations featured in the installation include air quality and noise levels, building use classifications, geodemographic analyses, AirBnB properties, historic maps, the Urban Atlas maps of urban land use and a simulation of Luas tram movements.
