Since starting this project four months ago we have had the pleasure of chatting to a number of experts from Cardiff City Council (CCC). These included experts in traffic data, groundwater, plastic and air pollution. These conversations have been crucial to our data physicalisation journey. For example, talking about links between traffic congestion and N2O levels, the need for more recycling and understanding the difference between groundwater and perched water tables have all fed into our creative thinking. We are not sure yet if we will use all this data but one thing is for sure, it has been a very worthwhile experience. Especially, as we continue to piece together the various parts of our narrative and to find innovative physical ways of communicating the need for more green behaviours and actions.
Some really nice effects coming through with the etched Flora & Fauna now placed on the map. The next challenge is how we present the logbooks on this map.
