Using Data to Discover the Hidden City

Using Data to Discover the Hidden City

How does collection of realtime data help our understanding of the Hidden City? Using animations and visualisation created from data collected from movements around the city, we show the present best practises of data collection for urban studies. Presentation given at Global Forum for Urban Resilience, Washington DC, May 2014
