Check Out Nokia HERE’s LivingCities HTML5 Project – Pretty AmazingJuly 3, 2013 No Comments
The team at Nokia HERE have created an amazing project using HTML5, Crowd Mapping and tech by CartoDB. HERE’s LivingCities takes busy locations around the world and visually shows how they come to life in the morning and settle down at night. HERE’s LivingCities also has plenty of information about the city popping up throughout the ‘day’.
Locations available now:
Reno Marioni, director of crowd mapping at HERE
“We’re at the beginning stages of seeing what we can do with this kind of data,”
“The map is beautiful canvas to explore these different applications and uses.”
About HERE LivingCities
If you live in a city, the city’s a fundamental part of your life. At HERE, we think the city also has a life of its own. Through our data visualization, we aim to inspire developers to take a look at data APIs and CartoDB technology to develop great city visualizations of their own.
The visualization was built by CartoDB using their cloud infrastructure. It makes use of HTML5 Torque technology to animate geospatial data sets over time.
The data behind this visualization is continuously collected by HERE through connected devices. We don’t collect personal data: we collect small data changes to find out how the traffic is flowing (or not) in the city, if a road is closed, if a new road has opened etc. This is how we construct fresh maps that are used online and in loads of devices.
We believe this data can be used for many different things, and we’ve partnered with CartoDB to explore interesting visualizations that tell different stories. In our visualization, you can see traffic density and lot of visual facts derived from the aggregated data we get about the city.
