Colouring London is a knowledge sharing, citizen science platform about London's buildings, built for and with the community. Whether you're an individual colouring just one building, or an organisation providing large-scale open datasets, your contribution is greatly appreciated. Each entry will support research towards making London more sustainable.
During 2019 we'll be adding leaderboards to thank our top contributors, as well as some simple gamification to help make the uploading process more fun.
Our core collaborators and specialist advisers generously provide free, ongoing advice to our team, on content, research applications, data, technical issues, funding & partnership opportunities.
