| Interactive Visualizations for Data-driven Design

Home

The SmartCampus project visualizes anonymized movement and activity data from 300 students on the University of Calgary campus. These visualizations illustrate movement and behavior patterns of students in ways that can help answer key questions about the design of campus spaces.

The complete anonymized dataset is available for download on Dataverse.
