CityDashboard aggregates real-time data for cities around the UK and presents the information on a webpage and map. The project was created by the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London. The dashboard of live feeds displays all sorts of information, including local news, weather, transport, air quality, mood, river levels, and Twitter trends. Small countdown timers show when each feed will be updated.
