The Copenhagen Wheel: Data Viz Journal III

Presentation of the Copenhagen Wheel project at UN Climate Summit for Mayors in December was a huge success. I would like to post a few videos here which is related to my work:

The online user interface:

The idea was that pollutant information collected by the sensors embedded in wheels were transmitted to our server through smart phones. A web interface, accessible with both pc and phones, showed pollutant distribution in real time. One could browse his own data, keep a record of his contribution to a greener city, challenge with friends, and get route suggestions according to pollution level. The city management could keep an eye on the city and react to dangerous level of pollutants right away. The complete and high-definition record of pollutant maps could also cross-reference with land use, weather, transportation etc. in urban research and in long term, support policy decisions.
