This is my personal research and project blog, where I seek to share advances in urban planning thinking through both rapidly emerging data science and visualisation techniques. I share code, tutorials, conference material and, occasionally, words. Topics range from transport, computational geography, accessibility, mapping, modelling and making. Welcome, and enjoy!
1) Presenting paper at Web3D conference in Los Angeles – 24th International ACM Conference on 3D Web Graphics and Interactive Technology. The talk will be on use of Microsoft HoloLens and augmented reality in viewing large sensor data sets.
2) Teaching on the UNSW Master of City Analytics – geocomputation, network theory, centrality measures, flows in Python and geospatial workflow management (FME).
3) Article published – A review and reframing of participatory urban dashboards
July 2019 – presenting a paper and a poster at 16th International Conference on Computers in Urban Planning and Urban Management (CUPUM) in Wuhan, China:
1) Computational urban transport performance monitoring – visualisation of high-volume, longitudinal transport sensor data with rapid 3D web graphics libraries.
2) A framework for the design and evaluation of effective participatory urban data platforms – twelve key components [Poster]
June 2019 – presenting two papers at 2nd International Conference on Urban Informatics (ICUI) in Hong Kong:
1) HoloCity – visual analytics of real-time and massive passively-collected spatiotemporal urban sensor data in augmented reality,
2) UrbanAI – developing machine learning approaches and interfaces to support the planning and delivery of transport and housing in Sydney.
