Data Walking
If you want to learn more about data visualisation and collection,  you can do some Datawalking. Design teacher David Hunter from London gave a real fun workshop you can watch, and carry out as a Data walk: 

You can find the slides and tools from David’s presentation here:

Datawalking Results

Below you find the results of the Datawalking workshop with David Hunter from Ravensbourne University in London.

Amsterdam // Birds and their sounds – by Noah and Lisanne
Noah and Lisanne went on a walk from school to the local Zoo. They counted the birds sitting and walking. Flying birds were too hard to count. Check out the interactive map they made that includes sound: Map is made with Mapbox.

Amsterdam // Shoe quality – by Jeffrey, Simon and Floris
These visualisation show the quality of shoes, worn by passengers on three different subway lines. The data were captured by walking through the subway car, logging the shoes and the quality of it.

Jeffrey, check the detailed breakdown of the process.

Amsterdam // Advertisements – by Maika and Dennis
Maika and Dennis wanted to show how many adds and prompts they encounter on a daily 10 minute walk to school.

Almelo // Mannequins- by Stijn
Stijn gathered information on the gender and age of mannequins in front of store shop windows. The research led to the conclusion that clothing stores in Almelo are clustered based on gender and that men have more specialized stores (suits) and women more everyday stores. Check out the zoomable map, made with Mapbox.
