Project Description

This project is to design and build a dashboard that visualizes mobility behavior and economic growth in South Australia. The basis of this dashboard is founded on the lab’s previous studies which support that the diversity of amenities within a neighborhood accurately predicts human mobility ("flows") between neighborhoods and that the diversity of inflow of people accurately predicts neighborhood economic growth. This tool will be used to assist the South Australian government in pinpointing focus areas for urban development to drive greater diversity in human flow, or more interactions between people of different socio-economic backgrounds, and consequently more economic opportunities.
