About CityBench

The CityBench Webtool has been developed by Geodan and UJI, within the framework of a project funded by the European Observation Network for Territorial Development and Cohesion (ESPON), an EU programme.
The goal of the Webtool is to provide an easy-to-use interface that enables a quick benchmarking / comparison of two or more European Larger Urban Zones (LUZ).
This information may be useful to a wide audience. Target groups for the Webtool include, but are not restricted to, policy makers, investors and companies in search of a new business location.
The indicators, or the data from which an indicator was derived, originate from various sources, most notably the ESPON and Eurostat databases.
Other sources include the European Environment Agency (EEA), Doing Business and social media (Twitter, YouTube and Flickr).
