Edinburgh Cityscope

Edinburgh Cityscope is creating the digital infrastructure to make Edinburgh a Global City of Learning

We are turning the entire city into a pervasive, interactive learning environment, visible to the world. Through a smartphone or other device, anyone in Edinburgh will be able to learn about the rocks beneath their feet, the buildings and trees around them, the history of every location and the art in every vista, carry out their own investigations and make their own contributions to knowledge.

Physical borders define the uniqueness of Edinburgh. Edinburgh Cityscope presents this in a borderless showcase.

We have begun software development, creating two of the three layers of the planned infrastructure. The first layer provides the foundations required for data capture, storage and retrieval and the second layer facilitates data analysis. The third, presentation layer, will then be added. Meanwhile, take a look at our projects page to see examples of what Edinburgh Cityscope will do.
