1. City Dashboard

City Dashboard is under construction

Welcome to the City Dashboard! This platform shows you what's happening in Amsterdam at this very moment. Soon, a new version will be released.

The city in graphics

What is the average speed of traffic in the city? How many cultural events are going on? What are the noise levels, and are visualized in the Amsterdam City Dashboard. Play with it, experiment with it, create different combinations, and get to know the city in real-time!

Translating data into accessible information

Citizens and government agencies collect a lot of data, which they are opening up for public use more and more frequently. This dashboard makes use of the latest open data from a wide range of municipal services. By using the Linked Data API from the CitySDK project, the City Dashboard can be easily transferred to other cities using the same interface. The CitySDK Linked Data API also makes information searchable and available on demand, which enables developers to create applications like this dashboard.

How to use the City Dashboard

A city consists of many elements. The dashboard presents these elements as falling under the following categories: transport, environment, statistics, economy, community, culture, and security. For each category, the dashboard displays the current status based on blocks of 24 hours. The data is refreshed every 10 seconds. The information is captured in charts, graphs, and on a map of the city. Larger dots and darker colors symbolize higher values and vice versa. On the map, you can choose which layers you would like to see. For instance, you can choose to view a single category, interesting combinations of several categories, or all of the map's layers at once. Personalize the data you see, and discover the city of Amsterdam in new, exciting ways!

No data available?

We aim to display all the numbers, graphics, and other results on the City Dashboard in the most readable way possible. Because this platform collects data from a variety of sources (normally stored in multiple databases), it may happen that a particular dataset becomes momentarily unavailable. If this happens, the data source has been interrupted.
