Tracking. The Future of Cities.


In our urbanized world cities are not only engines of growth and progress but also political powerhouses. What if cities were understood as de-facto city-states, what if they were assessed like companies, or became an asset class in the financial sector?


One key barrier to a better understanding of cities is a lack of reliable, real-time data related to functional urban regions. We need data that is more current, closer to reality and more accurate; data that reflects the actual, functional city, not historic administrative boundaries; data that is more accurate than qualitative rankings about "quality of life" and more current than a GDP; data that is enabling interpretation, analysis and forecasting - data about cities that is meaningful.


CityTrackerX (CTX) wants to enable decision makers to "read" cities in a more meaningful way. CTX wants to be the platform to go to for city-related, industry-relevant, global, actionable data around the performance of our cities.

Therefore, CityTrackerX is now developing CityTracker, a unique real-time city performance tracker for a wide range of use in the corporate world as well as in the governance and research sector.

The prototype is ready and available to explore.
