Who's involved?

Our contributors

Colouring Indonesia was developed based on the prototype of Colouring London, as an open database and knowledge sharing platform built by and for those using, creating, managing, monitoring buildings and those undertaking research into the building stock. Whether you're a resident able to colour in information for just one building, or a specialist society or government body providing datasets for the city as a whole, your contribution is greatly appreciated. Each entry will support research into open tools that help us make our cities more sustainable.

Our team

Colouring Indonesia is run by a small multidisciplinary team and is connected with an international network of experts in various fields, data-science, software-engineering, architecture, historic building conservation, graphic design, open data, colour, and the development of collaborative, community-led maintenance tools. designed to improve the quality of building data collection. This platform was developed by King's College London and Institut Teknologi Bandung and is part of the Colouring Cities Research Program based at The Alan Turing Institute, The United Kingdom's National Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
