This is an open source geospatial exploration tool. Using various public APIs including Open Street Map and the United States Census, we can make dynamic, flexible models of how people are moving through the city. These models include accessibility in cities, multimodal transportation networks, and diversity. Overall this allows anyone with or without an urban planning background to build strong models with geospatial and urban data. This system works dynamically with a Tactile Matrix, which is an interactive decision support system that allows users to instantly and collaboratively explore the models in a tangible way.
