Seven Cities Around the World Are Hacking Their Environment and Crowdsourcing the Data

Hackers, makers, and innovators around the world have set up DIY environmental data sensors and are crowdsourcing their findings.

On February 6 the data streams from 100 DIY environmental sensors around the world will go live, measuring air quality, noise, pollution, light, and temperature. As part of Data Canvas’ second ever visualization project, “Sense Your City” will launch in San Francisco, Geneva, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Bangalore, Singapore, and Boston. The hope is that hackers, makers, artists, universities, and innovators of all kinds will use the data for all sorts of projects.
