CityScope Mark I: Real-Time Data Observatory

Groups

Real-time geospatial data is visualized on an exhibition-scale 3D city model. The model is built of LEGO bricks, and visualization is performed by an array of calibrated projectors. Through computation, GIS data is "LEGO-tized" to create a LEGO abstraction of existing urban areas. Data layers include mobility systems, land use, social media, business activity, windflow simulations, and more.
