Background : Growing global urban popula0on Source: United Na<ons, Department of Economic and Social Aﬀairs, Popula<on Division: World Urbaniza-on Prospects, the 2009 Revision. New York 2010 • World’s popula<on – urban/city based • High concentra<ons of intellectual and economic capital • Increased challenges managing resources, infrastructure environment & service provision
Exis0ng Open Government Data Ini0a0ves based around City data e.g.
State of the art research – Real-‐0me City data streams – Live Singapore “…LIVE Singapore! provides people with access to a range of useful real-‐0me informa0on about their city by developing an open plaPorm for the collec<on, elabora<on and distribu<on of real-‐<me data that reﬂect urban ac<vity. Giving people visual and tangible access to real-‐ <me informa<on about their city enables them to take their decisions more in sync with their environment, with what is actually happening around them….” “…an ecosystem and a toolbox for real-‐ <me data that describe urban dynamics. Building on this plaorm, a community of developers can build mul0ple applica0ons in a joint eﬀort which harnesses the crea0ve poten0al of ci0zens in extrac<ng new value from real-‐<me data…” Source May 2011 : hNp://senseable.mit.edu/livesingapore/index.html (Senseable Cit Lab, MIT)
State of the art implementa0on – Web based plaPorm City Forward -‐ IBM “…..City Forward…..free, web-‐ based plaorm that lets you visualize and interact with city data while engaging with a community of people who are passionate about the future of our ci<es….” Source (May 2011) hap://cityforward.org/wps/wcm/connect/CityForward_en_US/City+Forward/Home
dataDublin Network What is it? • dataDublin is an exci<ng new concept centred on the idea of building a real-‐0me, dynamic, digital representa0on of Dublin City. • the objec<ve is to provide a digital plaPorm where all databases & data streams rela<ng to city infrastructure, environment & human interac0ons occurring across the city such as travel, communica<on, energy & water consump<on can be captured in real-‐<me and made accessible to a wider audience to help everyday decision-‐making. • an online portal will provide access to both data producers and end-‐user of informa<on • experimental innova0on plaPorm to facilitate commercial opportuni0es & crea0on of new enterprise by private industry & entrepreneurs Why do it? Dublin is a typical modern day city, sharing the same challenges and pressures as other ci<es across the globe to ensure cleaner environments, provide beNer services and promote the city and region as a vibrant & aﬀordable place to work and live.
