Lord Kelvin famously said, "If you can not measure it, you can not improve it." He was talking about physics, but the same applies to cities. Recent years have seen a proliferation of available data about cities - from real-time transit locations to trees, impervious surface to bikeshare locations. And where data doesn't yet exist, crowd sourcing and mobile phone sensors provide new opportunities for data collection. This panel will discuss different examples of how data is being collected, analyzed, and visualized for planning and designing more sustainable cities. You’ll hear from a software developer, planner and researcher, all working on data collection and analysis tools to create better places to live and work.
