Brief Description of the services:
The Barcelona City Council currently provides a large set of mobile applications (more than 30 applications) developed by different providers. In particular, Worldline has developed the following two services, which belong to the basic package of mobile applications of the Worldline MyCity solution:
City Agenda is a service offered by Barcelona City Council that aims to increase the citizen participation by keeping them updated with the schedule of the events. The objective is to develop a mobile solution that allows the users to look for cultural and leisure events –by theme– happening in Barcelona. The application provides a list of events occurring within an established distance, geo-location of the user, map of events, search tool for events and possibility of highlighting events.
NextToMe is an application offered by the Barcelona City Council that allows the citizen to find services and events occurring around him. The objective is to develop a mobile solution that looks for nearby services and public facilities, allowing the user to filter them by category of the service/event or to look for a specific one. The application provides a list of services and facilities, geo-location of the user and a map of the services and facilities.
Agenda and NextToMe applications are going to be migrated to the CloudOpting platform under the same experiment #3, since these two applications are sharing the same technological approach.
Scope and purpose of the services:
The Agenda and NextToMe Services are enclosed in a larger strategy of the Barcelona City Council called Mobile City Services to easy the relation between citizens and the public administration, to increase transparency, and to promote citizen participation.
