Abstract (German)

Ähnlich einer Web-Suchmaschine sammelt die Data Pipeline öffentliche Stadtdaten von Quellen wie Wikipedia und Webportalen. Ca. 200 Indikatoren von mehr als 300 Städten sind derzeit erfasst und werden laufend aktualisiert und erweitert.

Abstract (English)

The City Data Pipeline is a system for gathering city
performance indicators published as Open Data in order to ease the
compilation of studies and reports used within Siemens. Under the
assumption that Open Data provides means to automatise tedious data
research tasks, we will build a system that integrates basic
indicators for cities from various Open Data sources. We also will address challenges (data quality, coverage, heterogeneity, etc.) on the usability of Open Data for industry in general.
