A fun and creative aesthetic that highlights the waterscapes of the city.
To inform, to engage and to develop a more nuanced and richer understanding of Chennai’s waterscapes.
GIS layers allow users to interact with different layers such as waterbodies and urbanisation and help understand different sets of information.
Stories from each of the sites to provide not just a richer understanding of different stakeholders and forces at play but how they constitute different types of uses (instrumental, symbolic, sentimental, territorial, etc.).
This project has tried to leverage learnings and methods used in other ongoing projects of IGCS such as the ‘Pericene’ and coastal adaptation projects.
Intended to be a fun, creative map that seeks to engage, inform and challenge the user with new stories and perspectives from the ground.
Bringing together tools from both the ‘scientific’, objective side and the qualitative, subjective side which are intended to complement each other to inform, to engage and to develop a more nuanced and richer understanding of Chennai’s waterscapes.
