Urbanists now have a collection of open data, advanced tools, and analytic modules at hand to tackle complex urban issues. The vast quantity of open geospatial data collected by smartphones, satellites and cellphone towers goes beyond the representation of the physical world; it also reveals how humans reside in space, interact with each other, and move through the urban fabric. 

We created kepler.gl for easy consolidation, exploration, and visualization of a variety of geospatial datasets on the web. It offers urban designers and city planners a new set of lens to understand mobility, transit, population, infrastructure, land use data at scale, and through time. In this talk, I will give an overview of some of the existing and new features in kepler.gl, including 3D map layers, time-based animation, spatial joining, GPU filtering, etc. And how they provide a powerful toolset for understanding and evaluating the relationship between people and the built environment.
