Today, seven cities around the world released a crowdsourced collection of data, where dwellers across San Francisco, Geneva, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Bangalore, Singapore, and Boston collected information measuring air quality, noise, pollution, light, and temperature using DIY ‘hacking’ techniques.

Over 100 sensors tracked the cities’ environments, and it is hoped the data will be used by creatives, universities, hackers and makers alike to create new innovations and ideas, and to create a greater awareness about the urban spaces around us.
