Spatial observatories

We help to understand cities trough data

In a context of unstoppable digitisation, current decision-making processes need to evolve in order to integrate data flows, that include both existing information and incorporate new sources with the ultimate goal of addressing the complexity of contemporary urban phenomena.

We identify the most relevant data sources to describe key urban challenges while detecting the information gaps. We advise on how to manage, store and structure the information throughout the data lifecycle process. We also design methodologies to incorporate data when there is a lack of it.

We generate knowledge and indicators based on information, mainly to help defining the potential of each data sources to address specific urban challenges. We create data observatories to browse and visualise the information.
