Figure 2 Data indicators.

The WCCD [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] is a global leader in standardised city data. It hosts a network of innovative cities committed to improving services and quality of life with open city data. Significantly for our focus this week, it provides a consistent and comprehensive platform for standardised urban metrics.

The WCCD is implementing a new international standard, ISO 37120:2014 – Sustainable development of communities: indicators for city services and quality of life. This defines and establishes methodologies for a set of indicators to steer and measure the performance of city services and quality of life.

An Open Data Portal has been created, based on ISO 37120, which allows people to explore, track, monitor and compare member cities on up to 100 service performance and quality-of-life indicators.

What data would it be useful to know or collect about your city, and why?
