Smart Cities: cracking the problem of data sharing between them not just within them

The Blog came across this paper from ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications information Sharing) which touches on the thorny issue of data sharing between cities rather than just within them. 

To quote from the introduction:

“As Smart City projects continue to expand and evolve, data sharing sits at the
intersection of business opportunities and technology developments. Cities can certainly
benefit from data sharing across Smart City applications and sectors, but sharing among
cities, as well as the development of data exchanges and marketplaces, will signal that
Smart Cities are moving to the next level of value creation for citizens and local
This report assesses data sharing alternatives for Smart Cities and proposes a blueprint
for a common framework, a set of critical components and an evolutionary path from
data collection to data monetization.”
