Today’s cities and governments still operate according to principles developed two centuries ago, during the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. To address 21st-century problems such as exploding population growth and climate change, we need new thinking. Urban data can deliver that thinking. The digital breadcrumbs we leave behind as we go about our daily lives—which reveal more about us than anything we choose to disclose—provide a powerful tool for addressing social problems. Yet concerns about misuse of this data are valid. After solving this issue using Urban Data can guide us throw the new era.
Based on these informations we can observe requirements and behaviour of urban population. Dynamic Urban Model toolset is solving the question how these informations can be used for urban evolution prediction. From real time data it is possible to discover which parts of city will be growing and which will decline. Such toolset is powerfull information source for city governments, investor, developers and for whole public to see, what is going on in their city, where allocate their investments etc. D.U.M. is able to search specific localities and specific sites, where development is predicted and desing such an urban form, which is the most suitable for local inhabitants. In this scale the additional data are collected. Detailed data from locals and their smart devices (detailed data from residents, workers, visitors, from internet of things, infrastructural data etc.). The result is idealized urban design, which is accesible throw D.U.M. application. Anyone can see the building and express his opinion. Users are then the next data source.
The whole modeling process from growth/decline prediction to urban designing is based on urban population data and their virtual footprint. The cities should be designed according to their users and their inhabitants. After all these are the ones who are creating the final image of the cities. Architects and Urban planners should accept their privileges and also accept the dynamic of todays cities.
