active maps for smart cities

Why invest millions in IoT hardware if your IoT analytics don’t show the full or true story? Embracing location intelligence can enable Smart Cities to drive more value from their network of sensors – regardless of manufacturer. 


Integrate with air and emissions sensors, water sensors, CCTV feeds and data sets even if they’re from different manufacturers and data held in different locations. 


Visualise all the data you’re collating in one single screen that places your data in location context on a live, interactive, 3D map. 


Combine this data and produce interactive charts that show you what is happening now or compare this to other time periods to identify trends. 


Share this information with employees, residents and other stakeholders with customisable read-only dashboard from Active Maps. 

Successful Smart Cities take a comprehensive approach to developing their infrastructure, ensuring that all city applications and systems are integrated into a unified system. By doing so, they can gain a complete understanding of the city as a whole. This is in contrast to focusing solely on specific areas such as air quality, health statistics or crime, which often leads to isolated solutions and limits the potential for reusing the IT infrastructure for other purposes.  

The future of Smart Cities lies in creating a common IT infrastructure and platforms that can be utilised by multiple applications. This is where Active Maps plays a crucial role. Being sensor agnostic means we can bring different data sets together and combine them on a single map layer to give you the full picture – not just part of it. Translate raw data into insight. 

Having a holistic view of your data enables you to easily identify trends, spot anomalies and communicate what you find. Active Maps truly enables you to understand what is happening, where it is happening and most crucially, why. Don’t keep your data in silos. Optimise your city functions and promote economic growth while also improving the quality of life for residents by harnessing the locational power of your data. 

what data can we track?

Air Quality

Environmental sensors with multiple telemetry streams can be visualised with other data layers to show cause and effect relationships.

Live Camera Feed

Live video feeds can include movement counts within field of view (people, vehicles, bicycles etc). 

Census Data

Combine census data with geographical visualisation and layer data sets with time series analysis to draw meaningful conclusions.

Live Weather

Track live weather information and overlay with other data to visualise and understand underlying trends.

IoT and AI Data

Access points (people movements via anonymised counts of mobile phone tracking)

Live Traffic

Track in real time and combine with other sensor information for diversion and route planning.

Increasingly, local and national governments need to find ways to use open data better for the benefit of their communities.  Active Maps speeds up and simplifies the job of combining and analysing data – making it more accessible to a range of project stakeholders. 


With an ever increasing number of sensors and data points within our towns and cities our cloud-native platform easily integrates with both static and dynamic sensor data and can scale effortlessly.

cost saving

Monitoring city wide trends and relationships or working towards preventative maintenance of street lighting and public buildings and facilities can have a huge impact on local government budgets.


Combine census data with other social indicators, analyse trends over time across cities to give meaning and insight to planning and policy - improving community engagement and success rates.
