Smart technology solutions are connecting citizens to their communities in new ways. They’re helping to solve problems that range from water shortages to public safety. By using Internet of Things (IoT) technology, we’re helping to create cities that are safer, more efficient, and sustainable for the future.

At Spatial we have spent the last few years developing technologies that have allowed us to listen to and understand communities and their potential needs. We use the rich resource of social media, machine learning techniques, and ethnography practices to create “Geosocial Data” which allows us to understand cities and neighborhoods much faster and more comprehensively than demographic or survey data has allowed in the past.

No two cities are the same. Therefore, there is no fixed rule to go about planning a city. A right combination of knowledgeable planners/designers supported by experienced locals with meaningful stories can positively transform a city. Community involvement in the transformation of a city also creates an effective sense of inclusivity and belonging to the city.

A core tenet of the City of Tomorrow Challenge revolves around understanding the needs, concerns, desires, and experiences of the actual users of Pittsburgh’s mobility ecosystem (novel idea, huh?). This means talking with residents, visitors, and employees that travel around Pittsburgh, but individual anecdotes can only paint so much of the overall picture. To get a sense of larger scale trends and areas of interest, we completed an analysis of Pittsburgh’s 311 data.

I am thrilled to see the City of Tomorrow Challenge coming together here in Miami-Dade. It arrives at a perfect time as we look for innovative ways to improve mobility through the deployment of technology solutions that are sensitive to our community’s needs. The Challenge is a unique approach to solving the problems we work on daily. It will help us create a process to better understand the context of our neighborhoods to then match them with the appropriate mobility solution.
