A key element of our policy is the choice of open standards in the storage and distribution of information, as well as the use of Open Free Software. We open the "digital content" of the Municipality, the information, that is, the data it has, to all citizens. This enables us to use this data to improve local entrepreneurship, participation and quality of life. We follow the example of all the world's leading cities for investing in open digital infrastructures.
With spatial planning options, we strengthen urban equipment at selected locations to facilitate access, movement, information and service to residents and visitors. We will invest in external and internal "info-kiosks", electronic billboards, "intelligent stops" of vehicles, LED lighting fitting and electronic parking control systems, thus improving our competitiveness. We create a single framework for the management of geospatial information. The organization of data and information, taking into account their spatial (and temporal) dimension, will be the tool for the development of value added services and the creation of a common operational picture, both in the competent services of the Municipality and in the Administration.
The design includes:
• Adoption and application of common rules for the collection, management and processing and verification of the institutional or otherwise nature of geospatial information
• Creating a single data repository
• Adoption of openness principles and international standards
• Development of interoperable e-services
