“Street Infographics” is an exploratory case study to investigate how an urban visualization encourages people to gain local knowledge, reflect on their perception and even foster social interaction. Designed toaugment an existing street sign with socially- and locally-relevant information, the urban visualization represent data that is contextually related to local issues, and is visualized through situated displays that are placed within the social and public context of an urban environment. We installed four street infographics in Leuven, and measured the knowledge  of twenty families before and after our intervention.
