People and Flows

Knowledge of how citizens and visitors use the city with focus on movement patterns and needs.


Copenhagen Municipality aim to create the best urban spaces based on the way people use the city. The goal is to make the urban development smarter and based on data to a greater extent. This way we can use our resources in the best way and bring experience from project to project. Movement data about pedestrians and cyclists is in demand in many places in the departments across the city. Data will be used to prioritise and plan work projects and traffic divestment, as well as to determine the effect of measures on business, tourism and urban life.

Examples of how we support departments are:

• Prioritisation of traffic for pedestrians and cyclists

• Smart planning of physical initiatives in the city

Copenhagen Solutions Lab had a market dialogue with a list of innovative companies about flow data. You can read the results of the market dialogue here.
