Community-Centered Urban Sensing

by Andrew Mondschein + Mona El Khafif

While the revolution of data access and “smart” systems provides more data on our lives and environments, the question remains as to what data we need and which methods we should employ to promote stewardship of an equitable, sustainable future. CCUS develops a community-based toolkit for collecting, analyzing, and visualizing a range of mobility and environment information, as determined by local communities using low-cost sensors and web technologies.
