Data in the park

How is data informing better parks for people, plants and animals?

Sensor technology in Argyle Square detects and collects data about microclimates, pedestrian activity, rubbish bin levels, air quality, park activity and more. This City of Melbourne initiative seeks to allow a deeper understanding of how humans and animals use park spaces now, and how parks might better serve them in future.

In this tour, take a lap of Argyle Square with City of Melbourne emerging tech expert Tegan Kop as they share the details of this exciting project. The recently released app (free to download), will assist to bring the data to life. For those unable to join the in-person tours, Tegan will host a digital tour on Wednesday morning for people to tune in from home.

This event is part of Prototype City, a collection of experiences, tours and exhibitions that showcase innovations that will shape our future city.
