Urban studies based on indicators
Our know-how in terms of international standards and data sources applicable to different scales, contexts and purposes allows us to develop a variety of urban studies based on indicators.
We are specialists in helping understand and visualize cities and territories. We use diagnosis tools, city indicators benchmarking, urban activity and metrics monitoring, and Big Data analytics.
Smart and sustainable cities and territories strategies
We collaborate with both local administrations and private entities in the development of smart and sustainable planning strategies.
We provide our expertise in the planning and design stages, aligning the plans and strategies with the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Urban Agenda.
We implement leading solutions on diagnostics and design, with the addition of participation and consultation tools.
Evaluation of city policies, projects and strategic plans
We have experience in assessing compliance and socio-economic impact of smart cities and territories plans, policies and projects.
We carry out the evaluations through the selection of urban indicators, the consultation with stakeholders and by checking with predetermined goals and international quality standards.
Besides creating reports, we use striking state-of-the-art visualization tools to show the results, making the data dynamic and attractive to work with, and thus enabling transparency.
