Aim: to design a simple but informative dashboard for Christchurch - the smartest city on earth!

We're looking to help inform Christchurch residents and council members about their city using datasets such as C02 levels, temperature, pressure, humidity, noise and luminosity. We are also including the functionality to help inform those Christchurch residents affected by the changing river levels about anything rising river related!

We are designing the page with the intention of adding more datasets in the future.
