Abstract:Mobile applications (m-apps), which are based upon open urban data, make up new ways of governmental services and information. In a large-scale study we analyzed 471 m-apps of 24 metropolitan regions all over the world, regarding their implementation and usage development. For instance cities like Sydney, New York or Berlin host so-called hackerthons (hacker marathons) to actively push the development of m-apps based on government data. We model a typology of these m-apps and present a unique overview of the variety of types, used eco-systems and developers. For Android m-apps the success was measurable by the amount of counted downloads. Finally we argue that we are still in the beginning of citizen-oriented e-government and need more actionable research in this field.
