sense my street: data for everyone

Our data is always open and free to use. Whether you want to check out the current weather, download some observations for a school project or build your own app. If you need something more, you can commission sensors from the Urban Observatory, on your local streets to collect evidence for informing or even changing your community.

How does it work?

Tell us what issue is troubling you and how sensor data would be useful. Get your local community involved in planning which sensors to use, and where to put them. A number of sensors, of various types and capabilities can be deployed around your part of the city. The sensors record the current conditions and transmit data wirelessly to our servers, which cleans, analyses and stores the data for you. Be smart, use our ‘smart’ sensors get the most out of your deployment, and get data you need to provide evidence or inform your issue.
