City Forward - some urban data to play with 

cityforward.org - City Forward project by IBM compiles several official databases for selected major global cities around the world. An ultimate depository of urban data to explore, visualize and compare. Well, that’s the concept. I have tried to squeeze something meaningful and visually attractive from it, and failed. Interface still far from working smoothly and the visualisation tools are pretty basic. A good starting point, though. We’ll see how it develops.
