A platform that connects citizens effectively to local government, letting them contribute to their community's general well-being, would be an elegant way to make cities smarter. CrowdSC is a crowdsourcing framework designed for smarter cities. The framework lets users combine data collection, selection, and assessment activities in a crowdsourcing process to achieve sophisticated goals within a predefined context. Depending upon this process's execution strategy, different outcomes are possible. The authors describe CrowdSC's process model and evaluate three execution strategies.
Cities and towns, Smart buildings, Urban areas, Data collection, Maintenance engineering, Data models, Human factors, Crowdsourcing, Business process management,business process management, crowdsourcing, smart cities
