Imagine being able to explore any city in the world in 3D in your browser. Now imagine being able to overlay data onto your city - transport, crime, pollution, social data and weather - all live and in real time…and it was open source!
In this session Peter and Robin will talk about how they're creating ViziCities, an open-source, 3D visualisation platform, combining cutting-edge web technologies with open data to create beautiful visualisations. If you can’t imagine it…imagine SimCity for real life.
We’ll discuss the power that new types of visualisation present for all of us to better see, understand and make decisions in our worlds.
We’ll guide you through the technologies we're using, including D3 and WebGL, the design approach we’re using and share some important lessons learnt along the way.
By the end, we hope to have inspired you to start experimenting with these technologies to create beautiful visualisations of your own.
