Global City Indicator Ontologies Working Papers Series:

The following working papers define the Global City Indicator (GCI) Ontologies. The goal is to provide a complete set of ontologies for representing the ISO 37120 City Indicators. Working papers will be posted for each indicator theme (e.g., Education, Innovation, Shelter, Transportation, etc.) as they are completed. Working papers are meant to be living documents that will be updated from time to time to include additions and modifications.
