CitySDK is a “service development kit” for cities and developers that aims at harmonizing application programming interfaces (APIs) across cities. CitySDK APIs enable new services and applications to be rapidly developed, scaled and reused through providing a range of tools and information for both cities and developers. In the CitySDK project that started in January 2012, 8 cities across Europe have worked together to create some re-usable interfaces and processes. CitySDK toolkit provides all the information you will need to begin developing applications in your city. Harmonized Smart City API Cook Book introduces to you the opportunities APIs offer for cities, developers and companies. It also gives concrete examples of the use of the current Smart City APIs created by the six largest cities in Finland in the 6Aika Open Data and Interfaces project. During the development of the CitySDK we concentrated on “participation”, “mobility” and “tourism” as three of the most common interactions that citizens have with their municipality. This resulted in three APIs: Open311 API, Linked Data API and Tourism API as well as useful resources related to the API usage and implementation.

City Hall (2020 film)

The 2020 documentary explores the government of Boston, Massachusetts, from racial justice, housing, climate change action and more. Wiseman's documentaries do not have a standard narrative arc, narration, or interviews, but are based on observation of day-to-day organizational life, in this case the activities of Boston's city government in fall 2018 and winter 2019. Much of the film follows Mayor Marty Walsh in activities such as meetings with aides, addressing business leaders about the impact of climate change on the Harbor, listening to veterans at Faneuil Hall on November 11, observing Thanksgiving Day at Goodwill Industries, and giving his state of the city address at Symphony Hall. A second major theme of the film is public servants helping people in need: the eviction prevention task force, another task force on economic advancement for Latina women, and an economic development adviser working with an ethnically-focused grocery store.[2]
