Understanding Cities

A sustainable city is a complex system of interrelated parts; planning and managing a city requires making a significant number of critical decisions. Understanding cities lets the visitor explore these interdependences using real data from New York City in a simple and intuitive way.

Understanding Cities allows up to ten different layers to be overlaid onto an interactive map of New York City. Visitors can zoom into the map to look at details, discovering more about the zoning, infrastructure and layout of a modern city.

The exhibit is launched by the user swiping their RFID based smart ticket, and relies on intuitive touch gestures that are familiar, making it easy to use.
