Smart City Dashboard: Improving Transportation and Mobility in Singapore

By analyzing citizen complaints and other online transportation data, Netvibes’ Smart City Dashboard empowers city officials to immediately respond to incidents and improve transit services.


Smart Cities of the future will leverage technology, including data analytics and automation, to better serve citizens and visitors in all aspects of urban life. Transportation is one area that is especially ripe for disruption through the power of data. By analyzing traffic patterns, citizen complaints and other information in real time, city officials can respond immediately to problems and allocate resources more efficiently.

At the 2016 World Cities Summit in Singapore, government leaders and industry experts gathered together to address challenges and share integrated urban solutions. Netvibes provided a Smart City Dashboard for the event, focused on transportation and mobility issues in Singapore.

Challenge: To capture and analyze online citizen feedback in order to continuously improve Singapore’s mobility services

Solution: The Netvibes Smart City Dashboard gathers a variety of online sources, including news, blogs and social media, to analyze what Singaporeans think about transportation in their city. Custom charts reflect real-time data trends, while automated alerts keep city officials informed about important issues. Automatic actions, triggered by data insights, enable the city to immediately respond to incidents and even tweet automatic replies to citizens.

The dashboard is divided into several tabs, designed for different roles in the city government, such as Mayor and the Mobility Manager. The hierarchical nature of the dashboard ensures that insights can be shared readily across departments, while each user has a streamlined view of the information that’s essential to his or her specific role.

Role 1: Mayor

With many wide-ranging topics competing for the mayor’s attention, the mayor needs a dashboard focused on high-level trends in transportation. For example, the mayor can immediately get answers to questions like:

  • Overall, are citizens happy about transportation in the city?


  • What is the trend in sentiment? Are people happier this week than last?


In order to help city officials respond immediately to transportation threats, the Smart City Dashboard has been programmed to act automatically in response to data triggers. For example:

Map where news is taking place with Netvibes’ new Geolocation Facet

Netvibes dashboards deliver the real-time intelligence you need to monitor everything that matters to your business. With our newly launched Geolocation search facet, you can now visualize on a map where news is happening or where conversations are taking place.


With just a click from the dashboard, you can instantly create a new map to see where any topic is being discussed. The map data reflects all of the locations that are mentioned in the relevant articles, but not where the articles are published. For example, an article about the Russian president’s trip to Iran published by the New York Times would be counted as a hit both for “Russia” and for “Iran,” but not “New York.” This level of categorization is important because it provides a comprehensive overview of all locations involved while delivering reliable, trustworthy results.

Coming Next Fall: Private Tabs on Master Dashboards

Netvibes Premium for Team makes collaboration easy. By introducing Private tabs, Netvibes will give you even more control over your content: You will soon be able to decide to share or hide content from the rest of your team.


Quick background
When Netvibes for Team users access their team’s dashboard for the first time, they retrieve a copy of the Master dashboard. They can then customize their own copy as they wish without altering the content of the Master dashboard. Only users granted with the Publisher role can connect to the Master Dashboard and make permanent changes to it.
However, Publishers may want to keep some content located on the Master Dashboard private. Until now, they have been able to hide tabs from copies but their content was still indexed and displayed in the Analytics and Tracked Topic results of the dashboard.
To give you more control over what you share, we are planning to introduce Private Tabs next fall.
