Challenge description

Valmiera is the largest city of the historical Vidzeme region, Latvia, with a total area of 18.1 square kilometres.

As national significance development centre Valmiera plays a vital role as administrative, economic, industrial, trade and service centre. Therefore services and infrastructure provided by Valmiera are essential for town residents and for population from surrounding areas (~50 km) but there are no relevant data that shows mobility of citizens to and from Valmiera city what could help to development of the city and improve provided services.

Challenge vision

There are several ways how to analyse data about mobility of citizens but most of the times data do not give an overview about real situation, therefore it is needed to analyse data covering larger area (50-100km). This information will be beneficial to city planning, services as transport, health, commerce, education etc
