Place: Medialab-Prado en Intermediae Matadero Madrid (Paseo de la Chopera, 14 Madrid)
This "hackaton" offers different activities to better understand the quality of the air in Madrid, using real-time data in a meaninful way. Low cost Air Quality Egg (AQE) devices will be used. These open devices are intended to test air quality and were created during the last workshop in June.
Ed Borden from Cosm (former Pachube) and Joe Saavedra from Parsons School of Design (NYC) will be visiting for the workshop and assisting each group using their past experience in other cities. [partial streaming]
An activity within the framework of the City and Commons workgroup.
The three main axis for the activities will be:
-Gathering air quality data from Madrid City Council Website.
-Develop new sensors for the Air Quality Egg using i2c communication
-Data visualization for official stations plus Air Quality Egg on top of Madrid map.
During the first hour, there will be brief presentations for each one of these areas and afterwards, participants will join some groups to develop the ideas. In the last hour, we will focus on creating the data visualization to enhance our knowledge about Madrid air quality.
This activities are not mean as standard teaching but rather as a collaborative process to engage all participants regardless of previous knowledge or skills.
Only the presentations will be streamed live. Some parts of the session will be in English without translation (BTW if you're reading this, you'll be more concerned about the Spanish without translation part ;) )
