Dynamic Boundaries

Hypothesis Statement:

The boundaries of a city are not fixed, they are dynamic. The hard edge boundary lines illustrated in traditional municipal maps do not reflect the lively nature of a city. By querying Foursquare “here/now” data and employing clustering algorithms, our prototype groups Foursquare venues together based on location and activity levels. By identifying and mapping these clusters through time, this tool helps to reveal the dynamic patterns and processes of boundary formation, mapping out opportunities for effective intervention.
