This paper describes efforts by the City of Bellevue, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), CH2M, and Quantela, Inc.the Bellevue Smart Team (Team)to develop and pilot test technologies to leverage real-time data to enhance citizen services, improve efficiencies, and increase resiliency. Multiple City departments generate vast amounts of underutilized data daily that could be transformed into information that betters the lives of Bellevue residents. The goals of project Bellevue Smart are to (1) identify existing and new data streams within departments, (2) develop a connectivity solution that enhances communications and information- sharing among departments, (3) apply big data analytics and new software applications to transform individual data streams into actionable information, and (4) develop a GIS-based visual dashboard (City Portal) that gives City staff access to real-time data within and across departments. This work, funded through a NISTs Replicable Smart City Technology grant, focused on developing a Water Module that synthesizes disparate data streams into a common platform as the first building block of the City Portal.
