27 Feb 2014TSB Future Cities project: workshop on QCumber

CERC held a one day workshop on QCumber Smart City, an innovative open city data platform with crowd-sourcing. The workshop on 27 February brought together CERC and Algebra, the developers of QCumber Smart City, with local authority representatives from Belfast, Cambridge, Ipswich and London. The city representatives provided invaluable feedback that will help to shape the future of QCumber Smart City, ensuring it meets the needs of different users within a city.

QCumber Smart City will use innovative interactive map presentations and combine public data with crowd-sourced data, integrating data across various themes including health, energy, environment and transport. Open APIs will be the basis for a thriving ecosystem of third-party apps and services based on phones, websites, smart devices, and social media, leveraging direct access to data through the APIs.

This workshop was part of a feasibility study funded by the Technology Strategy Board under Phase 1 of their Future City Solutions SBRI competition Data Challenge.

5 Feb 2014Havering Council encourages residents to use airTEXT

The London borough of Havering is encouraging residents to sign up to the free airTEXT service, which provides them with free local air quality alerts on their mobile phone, voicemail or by email.

Havering Council Cabinet Member for Public Protection, Councillor Lesley Kelly, said: "Air quality in Havering is good but many residents work elsewhere in London and the airTEXT service means they can set up alerts for anywhere in the capital. The alerts can be useful reminders to take medication or cut back on physical activity to allow for higher than normal pollution levels."

The airTEXT service is provided on behalf of the airTEXT consortium by CERC using their ADMS-Forecast software.

24 Jan 2014CERC's Mapper "provides stunning GIS capability"

TatukGIS, the GIS company, have praised CERC's Mapper as providing "stunning GIS capability". The mapping tool originally released with ADMS has now been significantly improved and is included with the latest releases of ADMS-Urban, ADMS-Roads and ADMS-Airport. The new version can display a 3-D view of your model input, including the terrain and buildings. Each map layer exposes additional properties on a item-by-item basis. This allows you to colour-shade roads, for example, by traffic flow or emission rates. The Mapper has been developed by CERC using the TatukGIS Developer Kernel.
