Unfolding the City - Urban Mobility Visualizations


Published on

Slides for my talk at Architecture IO 2014 in London. Watch it at

In recent years more and more data about the city is digitally collected. This data from sources such as mobile phones, sensors, and location-based services can be visualised to reflect urban activity. Usable and approachable geovisualisations allow casual users and experts alike to make sense of this data, to see the city in different perspectives, and to understand their environment.
In my talk, I explore the challenges in urban data visualisation, as well as showcase multiple projects that demonstrate current approaches to and new thinkings about urban mobility.
