Urban Datascapes

Increasingly, data is guiding how cities are built and managed.  'Datascapes' are derived from our actions but also then steer them. How do humans and data interact in complex ways?

More and more, the proliferation of data is changing the ways in which we inhabit space... and so forth.

    Complex System behaviors often exhibit power-laws: with a small number of system features wielding a large amount of system impact.

    Power laws are particular mathematical distribution that appear in contexts where a very small number of system events or entities exist that, while rare, are highly impactful, alongside of a very large number of system events or entities exist that, while plentiful, have very little impact. Power laws arise in both natural and social system, in contexts as diverse earthquake behaviors, city population sizes, and word frequency use.

    'Normal' vs 'Power Law' Distributions

    Complex systems are often characterized by power law distributions. A power law is a kind of mathematical distribution that we see in many different kinds of systems. It has different properties from a well known distribution  - a 'bell curve' 'normal' or 'Gaussian' distribution.

    Let's look at the two here:
