5-D City Explorer

Team Name: 
IDeEA Lab

Project: 5D city Explorer.

Project Description: Creative geolocated data visualisation / exploration of data (such as land use, energy and water consuption) interpreted as imaginary city. [parallel Geelong] 

The first 3 dimensions are : XYZ coordinates 

The 4th dimension is time. Our game interface allows user (city explorer) to to the past as well as to look into the [projected] future.

The 5th dimension is the layer of information (data)

 

Data used:

1) Energy Usage data [Geelong]

2) Water Consuption data [Geelong]

3) Land use data: Housing development / Vacant land / Cadaster regions

Used Datasets: 
Dataset Name: 
Residential Development Projects - City of Greater Geelong
Publishing Organisation/Agency: 
City of Greater Geelong
Jurisdiction of Data: 
Local Government
How did you use this data in your entry?: 
residential development projects data is mapped and visualised in our 5-D Geelong space, providing the past and present information for "Land Use" lense. Lot size and land size are used to scale sculptures horizontally and vertically. Location data is used to position those sculptures.
Dataset Name: 
Cadastre Land and Property Boundaries - City of Greater Geelong
Publishing Organisation/Agency: 
City of Greater Geelong
Jurisdiction of Data: 
Local Government
How did you use this data in your entry?: 
We use Cadastre Land and Property Boundaries shape file as the base map for our 5-D Geelong space.
Dataset Name: 
Residential Vacant land - City of Greater Geelong
Publishing Organisation/Agency: 
City of Greater Geelong
Jurisdiction of Data: 
Local Government
How did you use this data in your entry?: 
Residential vacant land data is mapped and visualised in our 5-D Geelong space, providing the future information for "Land Use" lense. Lot size and land size are used to scale sculptures horizontally and vertically. Location data is used to position those sculptures.
Dataset Name: 
Water, Power and Electricity Usage - City of Greater Geelong
Publishing Organisation/Agency: 
City of Greater Geelong
Jurisdiction of Data: 
Local Government
How did you use this data in your entry?: 
water, power and electricity data is mapped and visualised in our 5-D Geelong space, providing information for "Water" lense and "Power" lense. Peak hour usage and off-peak usage are used to scale sculptures horizontally and vertically for power lense; Sewage and consumption of water usage are used to scale the size of sculptures for water lense. Location data is used to position those sculptures.
