As we deep-dive global cities working to create value from data, we’re sharing city data portals among the Data Supercluster membership. Community leaders and other stakeholders may find key metrics to refine products, form Action Clusters, rally and reach out to Citizens.
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.

We’re working to better understand the licensing of data produced by sensors installed and owned by the Alphabet/Google project designed by their Sidewalk Labs.
Sidewalk Labs will reveal their plan for smart city technology.
What are your questions about this effort? Should all the sensor data be available to on an Open and Free basis?
Which new Privacy and Security regulations will be tested here? How will Citizens participate? Will Google collect data as they do online, without total transparency?
Will you be required to wear a ‘cookie’ when you enter the region?
Is the goal of community leaders of smart city experiments run by private industry, to achieve benefits to Citizens, Businesses, Government, Education, Public Safety, and other stakeholders?
The L-shaped parcel of land on Toronto’s eastern waterfront known as Quayside isn’t much to look at. There’s a sprawling parking lot for dry-docked boats opposite aging post-industrial space, where Parliament Street becomes Queens Quay. To its south is one of the saddest stretches of the Martin Goodman trail, an otherwise pleasant running and biking route that spans the city east to west.
