What’s happening in Istanbul:

Previous days in Istanbul the participants were introduced to data collection and analysis of the urban environment of the city using open source technologies. In particularly they started to operate data sensing tools in order to collect data on urban conditions such as temperature, light, humidity, air pollution, noise and other key parameters. This was achieved by creating a workflow in collaboration with the tutors, Seda Tugutlu, Mehmet Berk Bostanci and Gokhan Karakus and by collecting data from various parts of Istanbul. From their findings, subsequently, will be provided the first open data source on Istanbul’s environment produced by non-governmental agencies.
