One year ago we wrote an article on The Exposed City: Mapping the Urban Invisibles, a book by Toronto-based urban designer and researcher Nadia Amoroso that deals with the world of visual representation of the city in a new digital context. The book formed the basis for DataAppeal, a new online geograpical data visualization service that was recently launched by Amoroso and a team of designers, artists, computer scientists, information delivery specialists, and GIS specialists. DataAppeal provides a new way of geo-based data visualization and generates beautifully crafted 3D and 4D animated maps — effectively turning information into works of art. We asked her five questions about DataAppeal and the democratization of urban mapping.
