KUDOS (Kölner Urbanes Daten Ökosystem, Cologne Urban Data Ecosystem in English) is a collaborative project in which the city of Cologne and the Cologne municipal utility group are working on the implementation of a cross-group data infrastructure, including the necessary strategic and operational alignments. Based on a micro-mobility dashboard protype, the project aims to show how data from different municipal areas can be merged and used to created new synergies. The basic idea of implementingdata synthesis prototypes is to optimize the control and provision of micro-mobility offers on the basis of coherent criteria.
The project and the KUDOS Cologne team have brought many exciting insights, some of which we have summarized here:
Due to the type and form of the data provided, it makes sense to run calculations of the required information using one’s own Big Data applications. In any case, a cost-benefit correlation must be considered in advance.
The definition of criteria for evaluating location positions is simple, but their technical implementation is complex due to possible limiting technical factors.
For this use case, historical analyses are particularly relevant. However, in order to make relevant analyses, data must first be collected and stored.
Open data visualization tools such as Grafana have many options for display. However, the tool is not designed for geodata or maps in particular. An integration of Leaflet as in the current MVP closes this gap. In the future, other tools such as kepler.gl could be used for this purpose.
In order to create globally sustainable structures, the member states of the United Nations have set themselves 17 goals by 2030, which are set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
