To really understand the Internet of Things (IoT) requires application, implementation, and execution in the real world. IEEE IoT recently launched a program to provide the IoT community an interactive platform on which to engage with use cases, service descriptions, business models, and reference implementations that will be key to developing a vibrant IoT industry. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to contribute to the IoT cause, as well as get excellent exposure for your projects and ideas.
Interconnectivity of GIS systems in the Brasov Municipality
- ICT CityPulse
- Transport, energy, environment, agriculture
The Brasov municipality has developed its own Geographical Information System (GIS) a few years ago. Since then, the GIS system has been developed and is used more and more in various aspects of urban management. Currently, there are active protocols with various urban enterprises to provide relevant data to the municipality in order to update the GIS system. In the Brasov area, there are two more stakeholders who operate their own GIS system - the gas company and the water and sewage company. The municipality is hoping to develop a mechanism for the 2 private GIS systems to connect to the public GIS servers and share the updated data. The main challenge is represented by the security protocols of the gas and water companies who often do not allow the interconnectivity of these systems. A real time updating of GIS would allow for better real time information used in urban management.
