atNight – Mapping Projekt

atNight ist ein spanisches (Mapping-)Projekt, welches sich dem englischen Begriff »Nightscape« auf die naheliegendste als auch faszinierendste Weise annähert: in dem man die Nacht(landschaft) kartographiert.

»atNight is a research project based on the (re)definition of the term „nightscape“. Considering landscape in a broad sense, the research aims to build bridges between different technical and humanistic disciplines.

The research explores night urban landscape as a sensitive and cognitive relationship between people and their environment. The project focuses on the aesthetical process of identification of citizenship with their territory to emphasize the role of night in the definition of urban landscape –as the framework for leisure and socialization.

We believe that the opportunity to reformulate the basis of nightscape design involves the construction of a valid representation of itself. atNight aims to build interpretative cartographies of nightscape main assets in order to create a new critical model to share, discuss and develop ideas about nightscapes transformation.«

Produkt sind tolle, auf open data basierende, Kartenwerke.

»atNight has tested the potential of representation techniques of the city image by working on a night cartography (focused in Barcelona). We have taken the process of experimentation of the own drawing tools as an opportunity that enables us to assign geometry and measure to intangible aspects of the reality, making the invisible visible (drawing intangibles).«

Auch wenn bei einigen der Karten der Bezug nicht unbedingt auf der Hand liegt: Interessant, spannend, inspirierend und toll anzuschauen sowohl für GIS-Freunde als auch für Nachtinteressierte.
