What is this standard about?
It provides a framework within which data that is created, used and maintained by a city across all sectors can be used in interoperable ways to provide community services.

Who is this standard for?

 -   Organizations that provide services to communities in cities
 -   Organizations that manage the resulting data
 -   City policy developers

 -   Others who are interested in leading and shaping the city environment, including:
       - Senior executives in the private sector
       - Leaders from the voluntary and higher and further education sectors

Why should you use this standard?

Because when cities exploit the potential of interoperable data it leads to many benefits, including:

-    Reduced cost as the need to re-collect and verify data is removed
-    Integrated city systems and services driven by data
-    A common understanding of the needs of communities
-    Shared objectives, collaboratively developed and evidenced using data
-    Engaged and enabled citizens and communities
-    Transparency in decision-making
-    Development of partnership models
-    Businesses and communities co-creating innovation
-    Improved quality of life for citizens
