Student data visualisation challenge 2019

Challenge 1: Solid waste collection plan for Tanzanian cities

Planning proper solid waste management is a challenge for rapidly growing cities. During the rains, waste blocks the drainage and causes severe flooding, especially in informal settlements. There is a need for cities to organize their waste management more efficiently and identify potential locations and strategy for solid waste collection.

This challenge seeks visualizations of solid waste collection points, their placement and collection strategy. The users of the information are municipalities and solid waste collection companies.

Visualisation size for this theme: Only one Municipality to be selected either from Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar for the challenge.

Solid Wast Collection for sustainable economy in Tanzanian cities – Ubungo, Dar es Salaam

This visualisation focuses on showing how hight the solid wastes are generated. It shows  various types of solid waste generated in Dar es Salaam City which includes garbage, plastics, glass, paper, aluminium and metals. The issues is surrounding the Dar es Salaam city and other cities in Tanzania, however, this visualisisation using Ubungo Municipality to visualise this problem.

Suggested waste point collection – Dar es Salaam

This visualisation focuses visualise the challenge of an overproduction of solid wastes in most of the rapidly growing cities in Tanzania which is resulting from various reasons but mainly being increase in population. The visualisation is aimed to provide adequate information to the responsible authorities to organize their waste management more efficiently and identify potential locations for solid waste collection using geospatial technique.

A Sustainable Waste Collection for Zero Waste.

In Dar es Salaam, Tanzania waste generation has witnessed an increasing trend parallel to the development of industrialization, urbanization, and rapid growth of population. The problem has become one of the primary urban environmental issues. The visualisation accelerate Tanzania’s transition to smart and sustainable waste management waste through collection and recycling platform that the group has come up with

Solid Wast management in Kindondoni Municipal.

This visualisation shows the proposal of solid waste management as an intergral part of the urban environment and planning of the urban infrastructure to ensure a safe and healthy human environment while considering the promotion of sustainable economic growth by looking on aspects like recycle, reuse and recovery of the solid waste is grossly demand and supply driven.

Challenge 2: Story of past floods for better situation analysis

Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar City experience destructive floods every year. For example, in 2015 and 2017 unusually intense rainfalls led to severe flash floods in Dar es Salaam, which caused losses of life, damages to the properties, and major disruption to the new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system. Both cities suffer from the lack of proper situation analysis and action plan before and during the rainy seasons.

This theme seeks for data visualization solutions, which would tell the story of the flooding (choose Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar), and support authorities in making better situation analysis of the floods based on knowledge of the past floods and their impacts in the cities. The users of the visualization are local communities members and Municipalities.

Story of past floods for better situation analysis – Msimbazi River, Dar es Salaam

The visualisation display the problem of poor planning, poverty and poor infrastructures that Dar es Salaam is experiencing each year due to flood especially along msimbazi river where people loss houses, businesses, properties and lives. The visualisation is especially visualise  solution in order to make people aware from effects due to floods. The group has created 3D visualization model of areas which are affected by floods in along Msimbazi River in Kinondoni district as the way to visualise the problem.

Challenge 3: Communicate risks and hazards to local communities via visualisations

Local urban communities are often the ones suffering the most from repeated floods. Thus, communicating knowledge of the floods to the communities, and helping them to develop coping strategies with the floods is very important. Maps and data visualizations could be very useful in this task.

This theme seeks for data visualization solutions, which can help local communities to better understand the risks associated with floods, and to improve their capacity to communicate and plan different coping strategies against floods in the future. The users of this information are the local communities, sub-ward and Ward leaders.

Solid Wast Collection Plan for Tanzania Cities

The visualisation is showing the solution the group came up with as a map system that identify most vulnerable areas which through the use of OpenStreetMap data and Climate Risk Data, to make easier for people to become more aware of high- risk areas for the whole Zanzibar city. The visualisation help  communities and ward leaders find and report high-risk areas.
