River City established a plan to provide citizens with better, more cost-effective, and quicker digital services. It uses Enterprise Architecture to guide this transformation and facilitate the multi-domain platform in order to enhance city-level operations.
River City Services
River City uses an integrated sensor platform that enhances public services, planning, and security, at a national level. It systematically uses data and sensors to better urban planning, builds more reliable and responsive public transport, and improve health care, and administrative services. The transformation and digitalization of these services are represented by using the following architecture viewpoints.
|City Service||Architecture Layer||Viewpoint|
|Air quality Service and Road-monitoring Service||Context and Service Layers||City Service Indicators Viewpoint|
|Healthcare Service||Service and Information (Data) Layers||Information Structure Viewpoint|
|Car Parking Service||Service and Information (Application) Layers||Application Usage Viewpoint|
|Footfall-counter Service||Service, Information, and Technology Layers||Current State – Solution Concept Viewpoint|
River City Datasets
River City is committed to improving the services offered to its citizens and tourists, but at the same time wants to help other cities to be empowered by data and to promote transparency, therefore it is publishing its datasets as open data, hence anyone can reuse it.
|Domain||City Service||Datasets Description||Datasets|
|Environment||Air quality||An observation of air quality conditions at a specific place and time.||Air quality Data (JSON Sample)|
|Transport and Mobility||Car Parking||Information regarding the availability of the parking spaces in different zones.||Carpark Data|
|Living||Healthcare||Dataset containing summary on health and health care over the last few years.||Healthcare Data|
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs)
|Domain||City Service||APIs Description||APIs|
|Environment||Air quality||Air Quality Observed API based on FIWARE Data Models for Smart Cities.||Air quality API (Documentation)|
|Transport and Mobility||Car Parking||Car parking API based on FIWARE Data Models to monitor the status of parking spots independently.||Car Parking API (Documentation)|
River City represents its main Smart City initiatives through conceptual examples, making River City a natural testing ground for new and smarter services in different domains (e.g. smart mobility, health care, smart parking, environment) as outlined below.
