City Knowledge | Bringing cities, people, and data together

City Knowledge

City Knowledge is the future of smart cities.

Imagine a city where every urban asset is endowed with its own intelligence – a city where each object that your local government maintains or manages can think for itself.

Redefining GIS for smart cities.

+ DATA copyA new approach to urban asset management and simulations. Making government services more interactive, efficient, and effective. It’s the revolutionary Geographic Indexing Service that untangles the messy stovepipes of municipal data and provides a clean platform upon which to build the next generation Government Information Systems.

No more hunting and gathering for urban data.

personCity Knowledge evolves municipalities into farmers of information, harvesting it from all available sources. Stakeholders can unobtrusively collect information for free and without any human intervention, leveraging existing data streams as well as administrative processes already in place.

It’s a disruptive technology for local governments and citizens based on complex systems analysis.

Go farther

it’s available everywhere.

City Knowledge means effortless integration,
incorporating legacy systems, mobile apps, web reports, and more.

Information is fundamental. Instinct has its place, but major policy and planning decisions should be informed by a strong understanding of every issue.
Every single day, municipal governments make maintenance, management, planning, and policy decisions with wide implications. Countless hours are spent gathering information from archives, city departments, and regulatory bodies.
City Knowledge helps gather these data automatically, and permits them to be reused over and over, instead of being treated as documentation supporting a specific, single decision.

The big picture:
