At Studio Plat, we leverage our years of expertise in architectural and urban analysis to help solve spatial problems. We conduct research on architecture and cities, develop products and systems for analyzing spatial information, and create clear and compelling visualizations of spatial data. Our research and analytical services support urban research, preservation planning, and community engagement in order to help build better cities.
Visualize spatial information.
Conduct data analysis and reporting.
Design and build interactive web-based applications.
Develop workshops and trainings on spatial data research, design, and visualization.
Urban Open Data
UOD gathers the open data sites of cities and countries around the world into a single interactive map. The project grew out of our commitment to information sharing and thus reflects our contribution to fostering democratic access to publicly generated data.
PARCi is the Public Archive of Architecture and the City, a digital historical atlas of global urbanism. Architects, planners, preservationists, and researchers can use PARCi's fully-vectorized historical base maps and its analytical tools to generate qualitative and quantitative analyses of architectures and cities without having any GIS training.
Chicago Architects Project
Chicago Architects Project is an ongoing research project by the Society of Architectural Historians that serves to illustrate relationships among and between architects in the Chicago area. Studio Plat contributed to CAP by transforming a static genealogical tree into a dynamic web-based application that allows users to trace the lineage of Chicagoland architects and architectural firms.
