Networked Cities

Fabian Neuhaus

Time: TBC

Fabian Neuhaus will present and discuss his ‘Networked Cities’ project in the Innovation Space’s Speakers Corner. For this project Neuhaus examined the spatial and temporal nature of Twitter data from four cities: Brussels, The Hague, London and Ljubljana. He conducted this research over the course of one week, within a radius of 30km of each city’s urban centre.Fabian will present three ways of visualising the sample of data captured:
1. NCLm maps of the urban areas; created using that area’s twitter activity over the period of one week.
2. NCLn network; looking at social connections within these spatial based datasets.
3. NCLa animations; bringing together aspects of the research, maps and social connections observed.

The animated video is based on the geo-located tweets collected from the researched urban areas with high social density. Animation developed in collaboration with Anders Johansson and
DigitalUrban. The data was collected using CASA’s Tweet-O-Meter tool, coded by Steven Gray.

He has worked as an urban designer and architect in England and Switzerland, and taught at the University of Plymouth and as a tutor at the Bartlett on the MA Urban Design course. He us currently a PhD researcher at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at UCL and collaborates with many institutions in Switzerland, Germany and the UK on his projects and practice.

He is also the author of the freshly published book ‘Temporal Urban’, 2011, Springer, and the blog
