Urban data and city dashboards: Six key issues
Optional Fields
© 2018 selection and editorial matter, Rob Kitchin, Tracey P. Lauriault and Gavin McArdle; individual chapters, the contributors. In this chapter we examine six key issues with respect to how we come to know and manage cities through urban data and city dashboards. We seek to provide an agenda for critically reflecting on urban dashboards by examining six related questions: How are insight and value derived from city dashboards? How comprehensive and open are city dashboards? To what extent can we trust city dashboards? How comprehensible and useable are city dashboards? What are the uses and utility of city dashboards? How can we ensure that dashboards are used ethically?
