ATIS/US Ignite, through their Smart City Data Exchange Initiative, have brought together smart cities' leaders and industry experts to tackle data sharing issues and work on a common framework for “the secure and interoperable exchange of data beyond city operational boundaries.” Their Smart Cities Data Sharing Framework 1 takes a holistic view of data sharing across the many facets of a city’s operations and examines the different ways in which data resources can be leveraged. Their recent work assesses data sharing alternatives for smart cities and proposes a blueprint for a common framework, a set of critical components, and an evolutionary path from data collection to data monetization.
