Linking Smart Cities Datasets with Human Computation – The Case of UrbanMatch [chapter]

Irene Celino, Simone Contessa, Marta Corubolo, Daniele Dell'Aglio, Emanuele Della Valle, Stefano Fumeo, Thorsten Krüger
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present UrbanMatch, a Game with a Purpose for players in mobility aimed at validating links between points of interest and their photos; we discuss the design choices and we show the high  ...  To realize the Smart Cities vision, applications can leverage the large availability of open datasets related to urban environments.  ...  This work was partially supported by Siemens Corporate Research and Technologies and by the PlanetData project, co-funded by the European Commission (FP7-257641).  ...

Survey: When semantics meet crowdsourcing to enhance big data variety

Houssein Dhayne, Rima Kilany Chamoun, Maria Sokhn
2018 2018 IEEE Middle East and North Africa Communications Conference (MENACOMM)  
Semantic technologies, as a means of integration and coordination of heterogeneous systems, may help big data to manage terminology and relationships to link various data from different data sources.  ...  With the rapid growth of collected data and the variety of its content, the need for efficient integration at a Big Data level becomes crucial.  ...  In paper [24] , the authors introduce the UrbanMatch mobile locationaware game with a Purpose, which tries to alleviate main drawbacks hampering a larger adoption of Linked Data in Smart Cities scenarios  ...

The W3C PROV family of specifications for modelling provenance metadata

Paolo Missier, Khalid Belhajjame, James Cheney
2013 Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Extending Database Technology - EDBT '13  
The PROV provenance model is deliberately generic and domain-agnostic, but extension mechanisms are available and can be exploited for modelling specific domains.  ...  of provenance documents, and concludes with example applications that show the extension points in use.  ...  We will present in the tutorial, two smart cities projects, namely UrbanMatch [4] and CollabMap [10] , that use and extend PROV.  ...

Citizen-Centric Linked Data Apps for Smart Cities [chapter]

Diego López-de-Ipiña, Sacha Vanhecke, Oscar Peña, Tom De Nies, Erik Mannens
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes IES CITIES, a platform designed to facilitate the development of urban apps that exploit public data offered by councils and enriched by citizens.  ...  leveraging the simple JSON-based RESTful API provided by IES CITIES to create novel urban apps, and c) the City Council, using the platform to publicize its urban datasets and track services assembled  ...  A city may be considered smart when it improves the citizens' quality of life and the efficiency and quality of the services provided by governing entities and businesses.  ...

Online Geodatabases as a Source of Data for a Smart City World Model Building

Diamantino Ferreira, Fátima Fazenda, Karolina Baras, Centro Algoritmi
We believe that the aggregation of these additional sources of data will provide a more rich description of places of interest in a city and will enable an automatic creation of topological and other types  ...  On the other hand, we shortly describe our previously developed world model and propose a new type of data feeds coming from place-based social networks and online geodatabases.  ...  as the UrbanMatch game.  ...
