Re: Urban Transformation Needs IT
Hyper-local apps appear to be mobile apps that use GPS to identify stores, restaurants, sites, and activities of interest to residents of a very well defined urban entity, like an apartment building or neighborhood.

We'll be homing in on this topic at Future Cities.

Hi piratejulie, I don't think I know what a hyper-local app initiative is, but it sounds like a good thing!

Mobile devices & Apps rate @ 3.9.  The infographic gives me hope then. I am presently engaged with a hyper-local app initiative [with diverse applicability across Urban Environments].

Urban Transformation Needs IT
Urban transformation does need IT. It's interesting to see big data highlighted here--there's so much potential to be had by processing it, so I'm happy to see it included here.

Notably, the biggest challenge is limited funding. Maybe siphon funds from other initiatives to move this one forward? It's long overdue.
