City Information Open Platform (CIOP): Designing guide and tool catalogue

The main objective of this document is to share a new specific designing guide that guarantees the participation of the citizen during the whole process and a tool catalogue highlighting the more appropriate ones for the project. The created content enable to define the basis for future tasks development of SmartEnCity.

SmartEnCity’s vision is to create Smart Zero Carbon Cities that are more sustainable and inclusive, improve citizens’ quality of life, create jobs and wealth, and offer equal growth opportunities. Thus, the project aims to develop a systemic approach for transforming European cities into sustainable, smart and resource-efficient urban environments in Europe.

In this line, the main objective of this document is to collect both, a new specific designing guide that guarantees the participation of the citizen during the whole process, and a tool catalogue highlighting the more appropriate ones for the project. The created design guide and selected tools enable to define the basis for project future tasks development.

On the one hand, the new designing guide is based on the analysis of different UCD methodologies considering Smart Cities and ICT field development frameworks. On the other hand, the tool catalogue is based on a deep analysis of existing technologies for solution development. Moreover, it has been defined a specific selection criteria which is necessary to identify and select the most appropriate technologies for SmartEnCity project.

The definition of this basis pursues reaching the main goals that are defined for the project. In short, a citizen centered design approach helps creating more sustainable and inclusive cities and increasing the quality of life of its inhabitants.
