Urban Observatory exhibition launched at ESRI International User Conference 2013

The core of the Urban Observatory exhibit is GIS-driven thematic maps, which show cities across the world side-by-side, providing visualised information about urbanisation in comparative form. The exhibition showcases the interactive web platform - available at http://www.urbanobservatory.org/ - which enables you to compare and contrast the patterns of landscape or cultural values, such as population density, crime, open space and traffic, between cities across the world. Creators Richard Saul Wurman, Radical Media, and ESRI, aim to have 100 cities around the world participating in the Urban Observatory.
