Together with the city of Gothenburg, Visual Arena is now preparing to develop a unique test bed linked to the city’s digital information, with the goal of identifying needs, making data and technology available and developing and testing new applications that contribute to solutions to societal challenges.
New possibilities for data visualization
The test bed, under the working name “Virtual Gothenburg Lab,” will take the form of an advanced virtual model of the city, where data from different operators within the City of Gothenburg can be connected and tested, thereby increasing the chances of making well-founded decisions.
Combining different types of data and developing new visualization methods will increase the possibilities of experiencing and discovering social challenges, thereby facilitating the work with solutions.
“It is our intention for this project to create a better understanding of, for example, change, to enable analysis, demonstrate correlations and contribute to better communication,” says Åsa Andblad, Project Manager/program coordinator Visual Arena.
“We hope that the work method involving the test bed will be applicable in other areas in Sweden, and even internationally.”
