Urban GIS and Visual Tools – Practical 7 Group members: Johannes Mesimäki, Fanny Hatunpää & Eetu Niemi Analysis For Töölö residents, preferred locations and non-preferred locations are not far away from each other. In fact, the standard deviational ellipse for non-preferred locations fits entirely in the ellipse for preferred locations. It is clear however that there are more preferred than non-preferred locations towards the coast and sea, away from respondent’s
This is a group project together with Fanny Hatunpää and Johannes Mesimäki. Analysing the maps There are several aspects that make the Jumbo shopping center and the Tikkurila train station very similar but also very different locations when looking at accessibility to and from these spots. We will begin by analysing the two locations separately and then compare them to each other. Maps 1-6 show rush hour data on travel
Urban GIS and Visual Tools – Practical 5 Group: Johannes Mesimäki, Fanny Hatunpää and Eetu Niemi Segregation based on only low income and level of education is much more spatially scattered than segregation based on also rental tenure and unemployment. Largest hotspots are naturally visible on the low income-low education map but adding the clause of rent and unemployment really condenses segregated areas to distinguishable agglomerations of socio-economic disadvantage. Most
Our task this week was to identify industry clusters with job location data and create a diagram of Helsinki’s industry structure. We created five different maps (all jobs, commercial, industrial, scientific and one optional). It seems that when looking at all job locations in the Helsinki metropolitan area (figure 1), jobs are clustered where the infrastructure is the best – on the other hand infrastructure is also built where it
Here’s my map for building efficiency in central Helsinki. This one I made for efficiency across Helsinki small areas. The maps tell us that the most dense part of the Helsinki region is the central southern part, the peninsula. The density is reduced in areas peripheral to the centre, especially in the areas of green fingers, where the sparsity ratio is higher. Areas along transit trunk routes remain somewhat denser.
As peaceful as Haaga nowadays appears, it also has some dark stories to tell. This is a story from one hundred years back. This story is preserved in stone, monuments in plain sight, but one must do some digging to hear it being told. It’s still part of the story, how Haaga became what it is. Towards the end of Finnish Civil War, German forces landed in Hanko and started
This is audible story of imaginary jog from east to west. It features constant sound of feet hitting the ground as a backtrack. Backtrack is spiced up with “base” and “snare” made out recorded sounds to simulate the likely track the jogger is listening while running. Other consecutive sounds are ordered as they are heard along the path as through the headphones. Red dots are places where the backtrack is
This section should be seen as an exhibition piece, as an exercise of speculative performance. It is at it’s core a question: how is, or can be, environment perceived? How ratios/slices are appreciated? Can there be phenomenological input that is pleasurable as such, prior to conscious evaluation that is categorized by individual history and values?
Our group of myself, Johannes and Fanny designed a tour on Töölö, take a look! Here’s my map. Process The practical 2 materials were downloaded and opened in QGIS, and OpenStreetMap was set as the background map Our group decided on a route throughout Töölö due to its abundance of varied cultural heritage and recreational sites A line was drawn to indicate the route of the tour using the
The task of the studio this time was to trace the natural elements from Haaga from the time before urban processes got the dominant role over the ones that preceded them. Immediately it can be seen that there are some concepts used in the task which are not too well defined, like “natural elements” and “urban processes”. It can be understood what is sought after with this: what was the general area
