Smart Cities Data Exchange

US Ignite and ATIS are developing the Smart Cities Data Exchange framework, a blueprint for the secure and interoperable exchange of data beyond city operational boundaries. Designed to help cities analyze and apply civic data more effectively, the program will produce a data-sharing framework, recommended data formats and protocols, security and privacy requirements, and common APIs.

In addition to technical specifications and best practice guidelines, work on the Smart Cities Data Exchange framework will result in a single, highly visual tool that will help communities explore a specific use case for data sharing. The goal is to position cities for success in leveraging the next decade of smart cities applications.
