The de facto (substantial) digital modernization and the improvement of the daily workflow of all the departments of the Municipality, utilizing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The transition to a “Smart City” through the implementation of meaningful projects.
Utilization of spatial information by creating a common operational picture contributing in:
- The better internal organization of all the departments
- The creation of modern decision-making tools for the administration
- The inclusivity of and extroversion to the citizen and the professional
Central settlement of any information type concerning location
Common operational framework
Improvement of services provided to citizens and professionals via transparent web services and interoperability with other authorities
Single spatial activated information resource as the base for a modern smart city
SMART CITY OBSERVATORY
The development strategy for each contemporary Municipality, as well as the prioritization of the general goals and priority axes of the actions of a smart city, is based on the physiognomy of the Municipality, since it is shaped by its current identity, but also on the special role the Municipality is called to play in the new era. Under this scope, the intended common operational picture is the basis for the digital transformation needed.
The Smart City Observatory is created on the central pillar of “Spatial Data Infrastructure – SDI”, which supports the interconnection and communication with vertical smart city applications.
The information is organized in a central spatially activated Database, while the organization, dissemination and analysis of data is carried out in the most contemporary and reliable way, using web services, based on the use of open standards (OGC, ISO, Inspire) but also on open-source technologies, contributing decisively to the creation of the common operational picture. This location-centered approach serves multiple Sectors of each Municipality, while it can support the specialized vertical applications of the Smart City Observatory depending on the needs and the strategic planning of each Municipality.
