As Smart Cities and Communities establish regulatory, technology, and market-driven initiatives, data from a broad spectrum of sources can help establish value propositions, KPIs, proofs or disproof quickly, thus improving capital efficiency.

Action Clusters are a NIST GCTC innovation. Action Clusters help structure these experiments and prepare them to be shared at high visibility, in-person events. Avoid market roadblocks and potential friction in your community model by joining the GCTC effort.

The NIST GCTC Data SuperCluster online web is helping facilitate sharing in a familiar blog-based way. Our blog differs in that its designed to host not just articles and references, but live-real-time data visualizations and analysis.

Our new site aims to be an example of a living document that drives a Smart City blueprint for data, including licensing, authentication, data-exchange, economics, example use-cases and demonstrations of tools and technologies Stakeholders have expressed an interest in.

To build your model, one place to search is our online aggregation of sites with data sets, most of which are free.
