DataCités 2: data use and sharing strategies
DataCités 2 est une exploration portée par le Lab OuiShare x Chronos qui propose une méthodologie d’accompagnement des collectivités pour la conception de data services urbains afin de développer leur capacité d’agir dans le domaine de la data, notamment en ce qui concerne la donnée partagée.
Pour cela, la démarche conjugue :
- Un accompagnement personnalisé de chaque territoire partenaire : République et canton de Genève, Ville d’Antony, Communauté de communes du Bassin de Pompey, Communauté urbaine Grand Poitiers, Communauté d’Agglomération de la Rochelle.
DataCités 2 is an exploration carried out by the OuiShare x Chronos Lab which offers a methodology to support communities in the design of urban data services to develop their capacity to act in the field of data, especially in terms of shared data.
To do this, the approach combines:
- Personalised support for each partner region: Republic and Canton of Geneva, City of Antony, Community of Municipalities of the Pompey Basin, Greater Poitiers Urban Community, Community of La Rochelle Urban Area.
- Inter-regional workshops: to share the ambitions and usage cases in the regions, their problems and levers to action with public and private partners, associations, experts, etc of DataCités 2. These workshops promote the sharing of knowledge, experiences and the creation of a community of partners.
- Capitalisation on an ongoing basis: using a logbook in which we record all the ideas shared by the members of DataCités 2, the projects of each region, lines of thought, resources, etc.
Réussir la transition numérique des villes du sud
Installé dans la ville de Sémé-Podji au Bénin, Wexity est le premier outil digital spécialement conçu pour les autorités locales afin qu’elles puissent y gérer l’ensemble des objets urbains : réseaux, habitat, environnement, risques, économie locale, équipements… pour servir les besoins d’un développement urbain durable. Aujourd’hui seuls existent des systèmes experts complexes nécessitant du personnel qualifié. Wexity rompt avec cette logique de complexité.

Located in the city of Sémé-Podji in Benin, Wexity is the first digital tool specially designed to enable local authorities to manage all urban objects: networks, housing, environment, risks, local economy, equipment and so on, thus serving the needs of sustainable urban development. Today, only complex expert systems requiring qualified personnel exist. Wexity breaks with this logic of complexity.
Wexity is a modern digital platform, built for shared and collaborative use, designed to be accessible to all audiences within a municipality, from elected officials to senior managers and municipal technicians. We believe that only a solution used and controlled by local users can be sustainable.
Going beyond innovation of use, it is also our ambition to offer a major breakthrough in terms of controlling urban environments. In sub-Saharan Africa in particular, no city has an up-to-date and accurate map of its territory. The establishment of a complete and transversal database is in itself a decisive element for the cities of the South.
Innovation also comes from Wexity's ability to produce pragmatic analyses: how many people live in flood-prone areas? Which equipment is subject to environmental risk? Where are the areas that do not have access to drinking water? Which residential areas are furthest from schools? These are simple, obvious questions that cities are often not able to answer without external advice.
Datacities - Action handbook: producing and managing urban data services of public interest

This action handbook “Datacities: producing and managing urban data services of public interest” explores the changes in territorial governance modes induced by urban data services. It collectively develops proposals and contributes to empowerment of public actors on the issue of data territorial governance, so that they can take up action on major issues.
