Created for SCAD's Collaborative Learning Center, in association with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, StreetLight allows people interested in city-development to mine data from 45 different data sets - ranging from walkability to the number of businesses in a district. An app, Socialight, uses data sets found on Streetlight to show people the locally-popular districts within a city. At the moment, Socialight is a prototype designed for Savannah, GA.
