With over 79% of the Spanish population living in cities, the stress generated by urban lifestyles is immense and needs smart solutions💡.
Large cities face unforeseen events such as economic crises, natural hazards, population movements, real estate booms and touristic pressure, among others. Cities are living organisms and their physical infrastructures are in a constant state of evolution or decline.
On the one hand, smart cities aim to manage resources efficiently and to better connect their components, such as energy, mobility and infrastructure, through technology.
On the other hand, citizens play a crucial role participating in urban activities, questioning the evolution of their environment and innovating with improvement proposals. In this regard, the open data provided by local governments help to a great extent in achieving the above activities.
How do we contribute to cities and their residents?
Since Cartometrics was born, we have set out to create solutions that help large cities to be more efficient, by means of customized web maps that adapt to the problem in question.
The numerous organizations that work day after day in cities to solve environmental, mobility or citizen engagement problems generate data and projects’ results that need to be represented on a map, in order to better understand their conclusions by the organization itself and its audience.
We are utterly excited to be part of this global movement of smart city development. Our main goal is to make citizens' lives easier, provide improvements and help companies that are part of this movement bring intelligence to their geolocated data.
If you are part of one of these organizations, feel free to write to us, either to collaborate, share experiences or make the most of your generated results.
