Design Communications: QGIS Study

Fall 2014

Through group work, we studied the city of Chicago as an urban process, focusing eventually on a specific neighborhood, and specific attributes within a common city block, to study what is revealed about that neighborhood. We studied the characters, elements, and urban factors that could help create a narrative about the area, and then took it a step further to study the time range, relational context, and interaction potential of the urban factors to create maps about the area. We used data we collected ourselves while deriving through the area, as well as data collected from the city of Chicago's data portal to create varying maps with different types of information about the urban conditions baked into them.
