Park-In-A-Box is being developed as part of a collaboration project between the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA - casa.ucl.ac.uk), Intel Collaborative Research Institute (ICRI - cities.io), and the Future Cities Catapult (FCC - futurecities.catapult.org.uk).
Park-In-A-Box is developed as a real-time visualisation platform (data streams soon to come), drawing data from sensors in Hyde Park. It connects real-time data feeds with a small physical object, something that could fit in a pocket.
The Park-In-A-Box is developed in unity3D, using Qualcomm's Vuforia AR plugin.
Trimble SketchUp was used to retrieve 3D terrain and imagery, as well as for basic 3D modelling.
Tree Locations, building footprints, and maps from openstreetmap (openstreetmap.org).
Live weather conditions are retrieved from the openweathermap API (openweathermap.org/API)
