Open Data for Smarter Cities

Cities around the world have increasingly started to adopt open data platforms to shape the nature and type of engagement that city halls/public administration agencies have with the citizens. The specificity of local data that could address national and international urban concerns and the increasing number of available data analytical tools means that cities that are proactive about publishing data for consumption by citizens can also rely on creative and collaborative solutions from citizens and community groups.

This ‘Open Data’ is defined by the city of Amsterdam, as raw data from the public sector that is free from copyright, developed through public funding and meets open standards (unrestricted use across various technological platforms). So as cities evolve their journey towards ‘smartness’ and gather data using a system of city infrastructure, sensors, embedded processors and wide area connectivity networks, they also could look at delivering datasets about mobility, housing, demographics and spatial maps online to the citizens.

New York City, another pioneer in open data platforms deliver 1350 data sets collected by its 280 odd agencies through its open data dashboard https://nycopendata.socrata.com/ . London too provides over 500 datasets to help its citizens and tourists enhance their experience of London as a city (http://data.london.gov.uk/)
