The PinCity App collects targeted local data, which is analyzed and exploited to explore new ways to intelligent, demand- and citizen-oriented urban development. With the app, citizens can answer location-related questions about cleanliness, security, parking, bin and container filling levels and more, helping to create a real-time data basis for urban services. In addition, users can tag and share their own location-related topics, ideas and issues.

Study Participants for Data4City
For the project, resident panels are set up for the neighborhoods in Dresden and are continuously surveyed.
The data platform and interactive app is constructed based on the responses from the brief surveys given to participants from the neighborhoods of Johannstadt and Friedrichstadt. Topics that affect the residents range from questions about public transportation, security, delivery services to the overall infrastructure of the neighborhoods.
City Planning for the Future
A community is a living entity that is in a constant change and development. By using ‘community panels’, the needs and wishes of residents are provided to give an accurate view of daily life. The invaluable data that is collected gives service providers and city planners the opportunity to focus on demand-driven, citizen-centered and intelligent urban planning.
