The VLCi Platform ensures a more efficient management of public services through the compilation of indicators. It increases interoperability between different municipal services and offers an integrated approach on the city and its management. Through different urban, citizenship and service management indicators, urban behaviour and resources can be measured accurately, which allows an objective comparison with similar cities, as well as diachronical self-analysis. In this way, an improvement of strategic and operational decision-making is possible.
A Smart City platform must solve issues preventing an efficient management of the information generated so as to obtain the most relevant indicators, assess the potential measures to improve them and act if necessary.
The city of Valencia has obtained from the World Council on City Data (WCCD) the Platino-level ISO Certification 37120 (International Organisation for Standardisation).
This certificate, the highest granted by this institution in terms of urban sustainable development, evaluates indicators measuring the efficiency of public services and the living standards of the citizenship.
FIWARE is an open standard recommended by the European Commission for Smart Cities to ensure adaptation to the Internet of Things.
Valencia is the first European city to have an urban management platform based on FIWARE.
Our developers can access FIWARE freely to obtain open data from all over Europe and provide smart solutions and services. A FILAB environment is also available for both data and API experimentation.
Different data view formats will be available to our citizens under the form of control panels: the same information will be provided both deferred or in real time, and used by technicians and council officials for urban service management purposes.
Main formats exposed:
SHP, GML, WFS, WMS, KML, KMZ, CSV, JSON, JSON-LD, RDF XML/TURTLE /N3
Within the Smart City Strategy, Valencia displays its urban space as a laboratory for the validation of innovative projects solving some of the issues already detected in its municipal services, increasing the efficiency of its resources, contributing to environmental and economic sustainability, and finally, improving its citizens’ well-being and daily life.
The overall coordination of this project has been entrusted to the InnDEA Valencia Foundation.
