This unit will introduce students to the use of mapping tools and data mining techniques to extract and visualise information related to the built environment. Students will engage with a range of urban datasets including Geographic Information System (GIS), Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) imagery and emergent spatial information arising from the growing impact of smart devices associated with the Internet-of-Things (IoTs). Students will be challenged to speculate on the influence and capacity of such information systems to operate as quantitative and qualitative environmental design and analytical tools.
