MK Health MapThe MK Health Map is an application to visualise and explore health statistics in Milton Keynes. It shows a map where the different areas of Milton Keynes (LSOAs) are coloured based on map indicators. By default, it shows the percentage of people in bad health and very bad health in the area, but this can be changed to show other indicators instead. It also shows the location of GP surgeries in Milton Keynes.
MK InsightMK Insight is a (beta) portal used by Milton Keynes Council to share data with the wider public. It relies on the MK Data Hub to enable users to find “data posts” and visualise the data they contain through simple charts and tables. The charting facility allows to create customised data pages, including charts and visualisation from a wide range of data, as demonstrated in the example video.
|The idea of this installation was to show how a city (Milton Keynes) looks through the data it generates, and to reflect on the concept, ideas and potential pitfalls of the increasing move towards smart cities. This relied on data from the MK Data Hub to create a visual and sonic experience for residents of Milton Keynes to be able perceive the usually invisible aspects of the city’s infrastructure (including the energy and water distribution networks). As a sustainable element of this initiative, the Ground Resistance website enables exploring more of these data, and the divide that exists in terms of data provision for different areas of the city.|
