Visualizing complexity of urban life: 12 more projects

I keep bookmarking links on urban data visualization projects. It´s been a while since I first collected 10 examples of urban data visualization and new projects gained attention advancing new ways to visualize different aspects of cities. I am particularly interested in working on, beyond aesthetics, useful ways to capture in a dynamic graphical way the urban complexities that are otherwise more difficult to capture through the raw data statistics usually offer. This compilation includes works on carbon emissions, mobile phones activity, public transit flows, social media, among others.

I just picked the videos showing the results, but it is worth taking a closer look at how the projects processed the data, visiting the website to play with the data and, well, waste some time if you are not yet on holidays.
