La Plata City
adopts the Digital Enabler

Our Digital Enabler is exploiting the value of big data for La Plata, a big city in Argentina, to provide insights on tourism, environment and health in one of the Argentina's largest cities.

Approach & Solution

Approach

La Plata, is a big city in the Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, with a population of 899,523 inhabitants in its metropolitan area. The City was interested in experimenting new technological solutions to create value and also wanted to gain insight on data related to environment, health and tourism, coming from different city data sources

To meet this challenge we employed our proprietary solution "Digital Enabler", chosen as the best fitting solution thanks to its data management capabilities and its analytics functionalities.
The sources from which data were collected are: "Datos abierto di La Plata", Open Weather Maps services and Open APIs of the weather station distributed around the city.

Solution

Our solution is composed by many components that interact following a clear process:
Firstly, we perform a data source assessment via the Discovery Engine. Subsequently data sources are harmonized using the FIWARE Data Model and Data Mashup Editor. Then, the harmonized data is elaborated through the Knowage Dashboard Manager and presented with three different dashboards related to the three categories of data needed by the client (environment, health and tourism).
Furthermore, La Plata Open Data Portal (a dataset provided by the city) has been federated and harmonized too, with the aim to allow citizens to build their own dashboard depending on the information they were most interested in.

Results

Using the information generated from big data, the Digital Enabler platform provided three vertical views on Tourism, Environment and Health:
-The tourism dashboard shows Points of Interest such as: cultural centers, museums and events.
-The environment dashboard displays information about air quality and pollution.
-The health dashboard is used to visualize hospitals and car accidents.

In addition, Digital Enabler users can autonomously create their own dashboards based on data coming from the La Plata Open Data Portal.
