To enter into the new era of smart cities design and planning cities, the Greater London Authority's team has developed the Infrastructure 2050 Application Mapping application to support decision making and improved coordination of infrastructure investments between all the stakeholders delivering infrastructure and planning projects in London (utilities, regulator, local authorities, developers and planners).
This software application is composed by state-of-the art cross-domain data collection, integration and visualisation capabilities, advanced functionalities such as notification about changes in the projects a user has subscribed to, dashboards, as well as filtering mechanisms by geographical opportunity areas, funding, project costs, among others. Over 12,000 pieces of city data (open, private and commercial) relevant to infrastructure planning and delivery are currently included in the tool, ranging from years 2015 to 2050. Data sets include projected growth (population and jobs), planning frameworks, development proposals, infrastructure projects, infrastructure capacity, environmental threats (such as flooding information), and skills requirements.
Ultimately, this solution allows infrastructure providers to identify opportunities to deliver infrastructure jointly, reducing the potential for disruption and driving down the cost of construction.
