Enabling Citizen-Empowered Apps over Linked Data


Smarter cities can be achieved by leveraging already available infrastructure such as Open Government Data and deployed sensor networks in cities, and, very importantly, citizens’ participation through apps in their smartphones. This work contributes a platform, namely IES CITIES, with a two-fold aim: a) to facilitate the generation of citizen-centric apps that exploit urban data in different domains and b) to enable user supplied data to complement, enrich and enhance existing datasets about a city.
