Urban interfaces concerns how spatial representation, visualization, and different interaction methods including gaming can support decision making and facilitate understanding in sustainable urban development and transformation.
The focus is on digital interactive tools and visualization techniques that can be used to simulate different layers of urban complexity such as infrastructure, environmental aspects, and city life at large. A crucial challenge is how to integrate various kinds of data from different sources and applications. Examples of visualization platforms to study are Urban Strategy developed by TNO, Urban explorer used by Gothenburg city and Urbania developed by Urban Games in Mistra Urban Futures.
