GEO-C aims at increasing transparency, facilitating collaboration among citizens and enabling the participation of citizens in the improvement of their cities’ operations, quality of life, and local economy. The Open City Toolkit (OCT) is the resulting platform of the project, accruing in a single place all research outputs and contributions produced by the doctoral researchers. In essence, the OCT is a collection of tools, applications, services, datasets, specifications and guidelines to empower citizens to participate in and shape the future of their cities, and to deliver services based on open data that are useful for citizens, businesses and governing bodies alike.
Example tools are being added continually to the OCT, as they become available. Below are sample list of tools to improve transparency and enable citizen participation. The full list of components is accessible here
