Infographics and other visualization techniques have allowed the general public to better understand data.
What if we use the NYCDataWell to create not only dynamic, hyperlocalized infographics at the street level, but also InfoStreetArt?
Taking it beyond the CowParade and the Tidy Street Project, the City can challenge local artists, data scientists, and civic hackers to create InfoStreetArt that not only engages the imagination, but also fulfill a civic purpose:
- Neighborhood Debt Clock
- 311 Complaint type visualizations, localized to the street corner
- Recycling Gamified
- Noise-scoring NYC
- Hyperlocalized Public Service Announcements (e.g. Did you know that you'll need to walk from here to Central Park to burn the calories from one 16oz sode?)
- Hyperlocalized Energy Usage Infographics
