Perfekt City - planning tool

The number one tool for city development planning. Built on top of Web World Wind.

Perfekt City is a tool for visualizing how different factors affect to the the city development. With our tool you can easily take a look at different datasets concerning the city of Helsinki, such as but not limited to bus stop traffic, building information, and OpenAhjo items. The user interface is simple to and allows you to select different pre selected datasets easily. We are also developing a functionality to do filtering on the datasets as well as do some temporal filtering. We see that this tool provides aid especially in city development planning and in creation of city development plans.

The current version is a web application that makes use of NASA Web World Wind framework. We have focused on Helsinki area, to develop the first phase of our tool. City of Helsinki provies several open datasets, from example Helsinki Region Infoshare and OpenAhjo. With World Wind we are able to easily visualize, both spatially and temporally, different datasets. Our goal is also provide meaningful analysis, which no other tool currently provides.

Perfekt City is built by a group of computer science students who have a passion for hacking stuff. Because we want to continue developing the concepts we have created during hackathons we have founded a company to do that more easily. You can read more about us here.

Our application is fully open source and still in development, with new features and fixes made practically everyday! You can find the source code here and contribute. You can also take a look at the backlog there.
