Visualisation: Maps

Maps were first a feature of the Loca project during an exhibition at the Royal College of Art, London, during which the Loca network scanned and detected Bluetooth devices amongst an estimated 10,000 visitors. A map of the exhibition space displayed the positions of the nodes and provided a representation of the devices found. Throughout the two week event this map evolved to illustrate the flow of people traffic through the space. The purpose of the map was to validate the Loca network; to demonstrate that Loca was real and that the data that it gathered could be used to generate a concrete, meaningful representation of people's movements.
