GLA Infrastructure Mapping App

London’s 2015 – 2050 infrastructure visualised on a map

By 2050 the population of London is predicted to rise from 8 million to 11 million. As a result numerous complex and diverse infrastructure projects will be required to support London and help keep it moving. Working alongside data visualisation specialist Marcin Ignac, Squint/Opera created an infrastructure mapping tool which brings together, for the first time, data collected by the Greater London Authority (GLA) to provide an easy way for stakeholders to understand the future implications of infrastructure projects. This decision-making inevitably ensures that future works are cohesive and well-integrated.

At the heart of the design was the tool's interactive usability. Users are able to filter infrastructure layers, produce reports and charts and compare data and potential models through a highly visual interface, all on a web application. We are pleased to hear that the tool is already helping the planners to make better and more informed decision for the future of London.
