Indicators for measuring the city

plataforma_indicadores

The Valencia Smart City Platform (the VLCi Platform) is direct consequence of the Valencia Smart City Strategy, arising from the need of having an integral tool for service and resource management through a transversal data processing. The VLCi Platform ensures a more efficient management of public services through the compilation and use of urban, citizen and municipal services management indicators, which enable the city to accurately measure urban behaviour and resources. It increases interoperability between different municipal services and offers an integrated view of the city and its management. The indicators also enable the city to check itself against other similar cities and to improve its strategic and operational decision making processes over time.

ACHIEVING THE ISO 37120 CERTIFICATION ON SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNITIES

 

99 certified indicators

 

In January 2016, the city of Valencia obtained from the World Council on City Data (WCCD) the Platino-level ISO Certification 37120 (International Organisation for Standardisation).

This certificate, the highest awarded by this institution in terms of urban sustainable development, evaluates more than 100 standardized indicators that measure the efficiency of public services and the quality of life of the citizens.

FIWARE and FI-LAB

 

The open data portal makes available to society a complete suite of data via an updated catalog of city data layers assembled by municipal technicians: 300 open data sources, to which must be added the approximately 150 datasets shared in the Fi-LAB (FIWARE’s online experimentation environment). The objective is the use of these to create added value and to promote economic potential. To achieve this, applications created by users of this database are encouraged, constituting a place to display these innovations.
