Cividi's data driven solutions enable authorities, planners and developers to better understand complex spatial challenges to ensure the development of future-proof urban spaces. 

Cividi Solutions

Data-driven solutions for pressing problems in local planning and inward development. Instantly, without lengthy and costly studies. 

Pedestrian & bike mobility

Where should the new bike path be? Where does the infrastructure need improvement? How will it be perceived?

Transit traffic

Where does the transit traffic come from? How high is the share of regional and supra-regional transit traffic compared to domestic traffic?

Micromobility & alternative traffic

Where does the potential for last mile solutions lie? How can it enhance the public transport network? Which locations are suitable for sharing stations?

Security & quality of space

How do citizens perceive public space? Where do the residents feel safe? Where is there a need for improvement?

Vacation homes

Where are the vacation homes located in my municipality?

Vacancy & refurbishment

Which areas have the most vacancies? Which buildings are ready to be refurbished?

Pedestrian routes & green spaces

Which routes are relevant for spatial connectivity? How accessible are the shops on foot? Where do most people spend their time?

Work areas & commuters

How have work areas changed recently? Where do companies settle? Where do employees commute from?

Retirement living & generational change

In which areas will a generational change be characteristic? Which locations are suitable for retirement living?

Neighbourhoods & districts

How can functional neighbourhoods be defined compared to administrative ones? How do neighbourhoods differ from each other? How independently does your district function?

School districts & routes

How can the catchment area of a school building be designed to enable optimal utilisation and safe school routes?

Your benefits

Understanding space use 

Understanding the use of our living spaces requires a dynamic view. Cividi offers insights into space use and makes residents' concerns visible. 

Saving costs 

Spatial development is expensive. Decision-making often lacks a sufficient basis and citizen involvement, which results in planning processes being repeated and projects being aborted. Cividi enables a holistic and objective initial assessment in order to define the necessary priorities at an early stage or to verify existing planning projects. 

Measuring efficacy 

Planning is often based on assumptions, whereas implemented projects are rarely analyzed or reported on. Cividi makes planning success measurable. 

Communicating effectively 

Inward development requires mediation between a wide variety of interests and stakeholders. A common understanding of the use of urban space enables a fact-based cooperation. Cividi offers a multidimensional, dynamic and functional view to better understand contexts and communicate them in an understandable way.

Tackling complex spatial challenges

Spatial analyses 

In the era of Smart Cities and ubiquitous data collection, dynamic tools are required to understand complex spatial systems.

We guide you through the interdisciplinary challenges in urban development, infrastructure planning, mobility planning and in the development of location strategies. 

Data science & engineering

Our data team understands how to distil comprehensible and problem-relevant information from complex data sets.

We support you from problem definition and data preparation, through data analysis to data visualisation. 

Data layers

In our analyses we link open (government) data and administrative registry data with external sources such as mobile phone data, sensor data and user-generated data.

We combine spatial GIS analyses with statistical analyses in order to extract a comprehensible and usable base for decision-making from the available data pool.
