This time I used my prototype for a grant application to the Department for Transport. Our hope was to build a ‘Smart Air Quality Portal‘ with their money. But it just contributed to the height of the pile of rejected submissions.
Our screenshots don’t tell a story, but speak more than 1,000 words, as they ‘parallel’ 5, 10 and 21 air pollutants, don’t they?
We proposed to look at Air Quality data:
- to correlate data from national weather stations
- with data from local council pollutants.
But maybe we need PositionDial to show the gap between what they say and what they do?
We can compare data that has hitherto NOT been comparable!
We can now find correlations that we may have suspected, but now can see!
Or do we need Big Financial and Very Big Science data for 3dM Diagrams to become ‘interesting’ for getting more insights and measuring more qualities?
