An open city allows urban challenges to be tackled using data. On the one hand, data must be shared in a uniform and scalable manner so that it forms the foundation for building specific views for a particular domain. On the other hand, the data (especially in the case of sensors as a data source) must be of sufficiently high quality so that true visualization models can be built. All these aspects are dealt with in a bottom-up, three-part COOCK workshop. This workshop (part three) is built up as follows:

  • We start with an overview of state-of-the-art data platforms and which interoperability principles are followed.
  • Next, the learnings of rolling out a network of air quality sensors in the Smart Zone in Antwerp will be explained.
  • Finally, the processes, tooling and used semantic standards of the City of Things projects Databroker, MoDi and ANPR are explained.

Here you can find the first and second part.

Date: Tuesday April 27th 2021, 10:00 - 12:00


Registered participants will receive the conference-link a few days before the meeting.
