Urban Research

The UO supports research in the emerging field of urban science and city engineering. Visit our projects pages to see what is currently happening.

The UO supports research in the urban sector through the provision of a long term facility for the storage of and access to data.  We provide a means of finding and locating data, downloading it or integrating it directly into scientific workflows.  We aim to reduce the complexity of data use across sectors through simple interfaces and tools using industry standards.




The UO supports research through deployment of targeted sensors.  We can provide support to research by deploying specific sensors in geographic areas augmenting your research budgets.

‌Our team of developers and technicians can support the deployment of physical sensors, advice on sensors for research and also provide data, software, web and visualisation skills to support your projects and their impact.
