This work describes the implementation of an Open Data platform fed by real-time data that are provided by different city sensor networks. The aim of the paper is to show how real-time data enrich Open Data portals and require a new architecture to deal with massive amounts of continuously flowing information. The paper introduces the concept of sensor networ ks as a key component in the smart cities framework. Additionally, it describes the implementation and deployment of a real-time Open Data platform. F inally, the paper discusses the impact on both citizens and city services based on potential mobile applications that may be developed using this platform.
