Cultural Infrastructure Map

Groundwork GDS was commissioned by GLA to develop London’s first cultural infrastructure map providing pan London view of the cultural assets along with other useful contextual information like population growth, transport network and residential developments.  

Users can:  

  • View cultural locations in the city
  • Visualize the cultural locations alongside transport, planning, audience and demographic data 
  • Download data for specific geographic areas by using the tools on the right hand side  
  • Suggest missing cultural infrastructure by using the tools on the right hand side 
  • Edit existing cultural infrastructure by clicking on a map entry  
  • Understand travel times from existing infrastructure or a proposed development site by clicking on the tools on the right hand side 

Groundwork GDS, working with GLA’s Culture and GIS teams and with stakeholder involvements, developed the user interfaces and functional designs. We used ESRI’s ArcGIS API with Bootstrap/JQuery elements for the front end functionality.
