The EU-funded Citi-Sense project on data gathering strategies


The aim was to allow citizens to collect and share information related to the environment of existing public places as well as their well-being in those places. Attention was paid, among other things, to thermal and acoustic comfort, ultraviolet radiation, urban landscape, cleanness and general satisfaction. Further, it was intended to allow stakeholders (i.e., public authorities, citizens, associations, etc.) to view and analyse this information, which should reflect citizens' opinions and perceptions as well as objective measurements of environmental aspects. Finally, it was intended to support communication between citizens and local authorities to enable authorities to integrate citizens' preferences into their strategic planning.
