What is the Hack about?
Within New York State, based on which county, our app shows you multiple metrics and maps. It includes Tree Equity Score Map (how accessible trees are by different demographic of socio-economic status), Correlation Heatmap (how different factors are related to each other to create a better and cozy neighbourhood), Radar Chart, and shows 3D viewer of New York City. Data is organized from a number of sources including environmental, social/political, and architectural. Browser hosts the model that visualizes the data points. Data from buildings and surrounding are parsed and visualized through text and graphs. The hack was built from open data sources collected from New York databases, parsed and graphed in Kaggle, then mapped in QGIS and viewed in the browser using leaflet.js. The buildings were integrated using openstreetmaps to blender, then shared through Speckle.
What inspired us for this Hack?
Intangibles matter when you look for a nice neighbourhood to live in. Now, with so much remote work, we can better assess our living options, and knowing social and environmental equities and contributing factors help us better choose. Bringing together data science and architecture to allow a richer interpretation of select data sets. Connecting data points to BIM and GIS using the browser. Investigating graphical environments to make building data more accessible and test it against non building related open data sources.
