Proposal: Smart City – Data Management

Smart Cities do build on understanding and utilizing data from any kind of source within a city. This can be water, energy, people, IT, cell phone information and what ever data there is available. The data has to be collected, stored, described – simply managed. The data size is huge and we are part of Big Data.

Therefore there is demand for projects carried out on Smart Cities Energy data and other data. It is just your imagination that puts limits on the variate of possible project context that you can work with in your project. Cooperation between students, groups, clusters are very welcome – cross-education and cross-domain activities are necessary, hence IT people will work together with building and mechanical students and specialists.

Se e.g. the CITIES research centre http://smart-cities-centre.org for our research goals and ideas that have to be supported by the project ideas here.

Proposal: Smart City – Data Repositories

Within the smart cities research, data from any kind of source are key for the modelling and understanding of the overall systems. Hence we have to collect data in masses.

Under the CITIES project and others, a data repository is to be developed during autumn 2014. For this purpose, we can define a number of project that can include parts of e.g.:

  • hard-core computer programing and architecture
  • data base design
  • data repository design
  • metadata design and handling
  • data management at any stage
  • data collection from public and private sources
  • data correlation and analysis
  • and much much more.

The project is on the one hand related to software solution companies, public and private, and will involve numerous organization with available data.

In the very near future, smart cities project will deliver data as we build the necessary monitoring infrastructures – also a lot of opportunities in this related subject.
