Cities are making attempts to become smart by using technology for efficient service delivery, intelligent systems like sensors and networks to collect data, etc. There is however a need to make this data available in a comprehend-able way to the citizens so that it may better inform their actions and decisions. E.G. creating apps for citizen participation on neighborhood spending, apps that register citizen votes for critical decisions at a local government level, apps that give out data regarding local greens and environment quality, an app that would collect safety related feedback for different areas in a city from women across and create a safe place database outlining what time of day is the place safe, etc Engaging tools for public spaces like, kiosks etc that can collect feedback, take suggestions, include a mapping tool to identify problem areas, etc.
