We see this project has the ability to give quick feedback to the councillors and the ability to align the future vision of the city based on the data.
Gathering and understanding community sentiment towards ideas and topics is really complex. Currently most data is reported as yes or no. You're either for or against something. But the reality is that our opinions and answers to questions are far more complex than just a yes or no.
We have built a tool which is able to examine the actual words people are using. We can input data or conversations from almost any source, categorise it by topic or theme and then give it what we call a positivity score.

SmartCity dashboard offers real-time monitoring of Chirstchurch's environment.
The dashboard will allow users to visualise trends and changes in the environment such as CO2 emmissions, light and sound pollution, temperature, preassure and humidity. These changes can be seen as a change in colour on a map of local Christchurch.
Currently data for the dashboard is sourced from four sensors in the central city, however the dashboard has the potential to expand as more sensors are distributed throughout Christchurch.
