How can we describe a city?

Graz in Real-Time was an MIT SenseLab project in early 2006 that tried to find new ways to “understand” and “cartograph” a city…

>>Today the experience, infrastructure and morphology of the city are more closely related than ever before. The profusion of handheld electronic devices with increasingly powerful networking capabilities offers its users new modes of interaction within the urban environment. It also provides designers, artists, and theoreticians a new means for engaging and understanding the city. Therefore, forget old ways to describe cities!

The project focused on cell-phone activity.

Here’s a plan view of cell-phone activity in Graz.
