EcoMap Lab, Picnic09, Amsterdam

A one-day EcoMap Lab to build a shared understanding on how to map the environment (eg. energy, waste & mobility), aggregate the data and visualize it to promote behavioral change and reduce CO2 footprints

Date Published: 23 September 2009

Presented in partnership with FutureEverything, Waag Society, FING and Amsterdam Innovation Motor

We will use alternative measurement networks and services that enable people to take active part. Based on international examples we will develop prototypes for getting, aggregating & visualizing environmental data in effective, useable and unexpected ways.
