Fiware

WiseTown was ranked among the 10 finalist projects of the second call of the Finodex Accelerator for its use of Open data and Open Standards (Open311, OpenAPI).

Thanks to the FIWARE ecosystem, our team has been involved in FIWARE Mundus initiatives, such as the GCTC Tech Jam in Washington DC, the GCTC in Austin, where we participated together with the city of Todi, Assisi and Perugia, and several versions of the Smart Cities World Expo in Barcelona. He also won the 2017 GCTC Team Challenge contest with the city of Independence.

FIWARE technology in WiseTown

The collection of information from heterogeneous sources is managed by WISE Orchestrator, the module interacts with social connectors, external APIs and other data sources.

In this phase, WISE Orchestrator uses FIWARE Orion Context Broker to connect with open data, which can also be indexed in a CKAN-based platform. It also uses FIWARE NGSI to manage IoT sensor feed metadata and uses Context Broker notifications to power the APIs, which are exposed for integration with other software. Using the Orion Context Broker is sufficient to qualify an application as Powered by FIWARE.

WiseTown Engine

WiseTown Engine analyzes and classifies the data assigning the ownership of the information directly to the responsible office. Once acquired and correctly categorized the data, WiseTown starts its main work: the management and analysis of problem reports. WiseTown Engine is still responsible for the report workflow while Orion Context Broker sends the information to the user interface, GIS environment and database.

The most valuable part of the platform is the information it collects from citizens and its advanced management: platform supervisors can perform spatial analysis on geographic data using ESRI ArcGIS Online geoprocessing tools and business intelligence capabilities.

WiseTown collects information from different sources, feeding its knowledge, to be able to identify issues affecting the city in various areas, including:

  • urban renewal

  • waste collection

  • public safety

  • social services, transport

  • social services

    • environmental problems
