This week we take a look at barrier free buildings in Singapore. The original visualisation is part of a site by the Building and Construction Authority in Singapore (BCA). Although the site requires Flash to be available and enabled in your browser, there is a great range of information available if you do have Flash. From the map of an area you can drill into information about individual buildings. We didn’t have quite the data to do that (not having the building ID or the depth of information about each building). Nevertheless is was interesting to attempt to makeover the map to: cover more areas and be a little easier on the eye. Most of the info is available via hover over, but I’ve also added an inset bar chart to show how the selected area compares to the “best” and “worst”.
The interactive version is available here.
