Hub of the World

This project is one of the six projects shown on the  LIVE Singapore! exhibition. The projects were developed by the SENSEable City Lab and part of the Future Urban Mobility research initiative at the Singapore and MIT Alliance for Research and Technology. Researchers have collaborated on the development of an open platform for collating and publishing a range of innovative, real-time data visualisations about the city. It is being described as a “feedback loop between people, their actions, and the city”.

Singapore is the world’s largest trans-shipment container port and one of the busiest airport hubs in the world. How is our island affected by this constant stream of people and goods passing through? Where do these flows come from and go to and how many of them are here to stay? Find out by looking at this map which shows the port and airport’s global reach.
