Urban Data Visualisations

The City Observatory is a tool that uses data to understand cities in new ways, to help develop innovative approaches to solving urban problems (in areas such as crime, health, sustainability), and deliver positive outcomes for cities. Visualisations of diverse data sets and the analysis and cross-comparison of urban data can help us do this.
