Urban Data Lab

The Urban Data Lab at UBC provides open-access sustainability data relating to UBC's buildings, transportation, and natural assets to researchers, policymakers and operational staff. The 5G Smart Campus project carried out by a team of researchers at UBC in partnership with Rogers Communications is testing the potential of a 5G-connected low-cost sensor network for monitoring trees on the UBC campus, with the aim of improving natural asset management in urban and smart city environments.
