Colouring London is a free knowledge exchange platform designed to provide over fifty types of open data on buildings in the city, to help make the city more sustainable.
Colouring London is also the prototype for the Colouring Cities Research Programme (CCRP) The Colouring Cities Research Programme (CCRP), led by the Alan Turing Institute, involves an international consortium of academic institutions involved in building research. Our aim is to maximise accessibility to building-level data across countries, to help improve stock quality, efficiency, sustainability and resilience and meet net-zero goals.
New data and features are added all the time. We are keen to engage as many people as possible in platform development. Whether you are a resident, or a stakeholder in academia, government, industry or the third sector, any help you can give colouring in our Colouring Cities maps, and enriching and verifying our open databases with your knowledge, is greatly appreciated.
All our data and code are free to download, use and share under our open licence terms. Our open manual also provides non-technical information on the CCRP for anyone interested in our research.Start Colouring Here!
