Smart City

While the deadline for responses to the Call for Participation (CFP) has passed, offers of in-kind contributions will still be considered. Please direct inquiries to techdesk [at] opengeospatial.org. OGC member representatives wishing to become Observers may join the Portal Project by clicking through the Observer Agreement.


The goal of the pilot is to advance the use of open standards for integrating environmental, building, and internet of things (IoT) data in Smart Cities. Under this initiative a proof of concept (PoC) will be conducted to better understand the capabilities to be supported by a 3D IoT Smart City Platform under the following standards:

  • Outdoor 3D City Model: CityGML

  • Indoor: IndoorGML

  • Geo-IoT: SensorThings API

The scenarios selected to demonstrate this concept include:

  • Real-time monitoring on indoor occupancy (IndoorGML + SensorThings)

  • Real-time monitoring on micro-dust (CityGML + SensorThings)


Smart cities are communities where information technology and data are used to address social, economic, and environmental challenges. Smart Cities solutions are both popular for improving city livability, and necessary for responding to trends such as climate change and increasing urbanization.

Sejong City, founded in 2007 is the new administrative city of South Korea. Sejong 5-1 (A District) is the site of a wide-ranging Smart City Initiative, led by the Korea Land and Housing (LH) Corporation. Projects under this initiative include the following:

  • AR/VR Service (Smart City Experience Zone)

  • Smart Street

  • Smart Park

  • Smart Facilities

A video of the Sejong City Smart City Initiative is available on  YouTube.

The Korea Land and Housing (LH) Corporation is sponsoring this OGC pilot that will complement the work being advance in the Sejong Smart City Initiative.
