Protection against floods

Climate change is increasing the risk of flooding. Municipalities need to act urgently. How can data-based solutions help?

Regulating Shared Micromobility Programs

Shared micromobility could revolutionize road transportation. However, common frameworks for its support and maintenance are often lacking. What can municipalities do?

Watering Green Spaces Efficiently

Data-based solutions for tree irrigation offer the opportunity to use water efficiently and sparingly. This is becoming increasingly important, especially given the changing climate.

How to Manage Parking

Cars dominate the streets and occupy a disproportionate amount of space, particularly when parked. Urban data can help use public space more efficiently. The question is how.
