LiveNord – Cross-regional data on interactive maps
Interactive visualisation of cross-regional issues in the northern regions of Sweden, Norway and Finland is the topic of the LiveNord project lead by the Arctic Centre. The main goal is to communicate cross-border data targeting both, the general public and policy makers.
The goal will be achieved through the development of a new map based visualisation tool based on live data feed and static data. In addition, a cross-regional planning tool will be developed to facilitate integrated cross-regional planning. Both tools will include a public participation tool to enable the acquisition of crowdsourced data, which has potential of engaging people in issues affecting their daily life in the region.
The visualized data will be selected according to indicators reflecting the four dimensions of territorial sustainability: economic, social, environmental and cultural sustainability.
The outcome of the project will be three science exhibition stations incorporating the visualization tool. These exhibition elements will be hosted in the permanent science exhibitions of project partners in Rovaniemi, Luleå and Tromsø.
The 3-year project is ending in 2018. The project is funded by the Interreg Nord EU-program and co-financed by the partners, Lapin liitto, Länsstyrelsen i Norrbottens län and Troms fylkeskommune. All together the project budget is 1,15 mil. euros. The project will be conducted as a public-private partnership.
