Urban Design, Mapping & Research

An important aspect of understanding and working with cities is data.
Towards this, UDC engages in mapping various aspects of cities as well as allied urban research that can facilitate better solutions for our cities.
Aside from traditional mapping techniques, we are also constantly innovating ways to involve a wide range of citizen groups to understand the city through maps.
