What do we do?
CityWise is a company that creates print and digital products based on mapping. A map is a fundamental way by which information is contextualized and spatialized.
Our skills lie in visualizing and mapping physical environments. We feel our cities with their complexity need hyperlocal (very local and very topical) data to be captured and visualized. Hyper-localization is an immersive experience where imagery can be used to personalize the experience and make the user feel they’re actually taking part in an experience created for them. Embedding local elements via maps, content, and more also helps to build this optimized local experience. Citywise is creating hyperlocal content for areas within Delhi in partnership with the government.
Citywise believes that hyper local content is of paramount importance to a country like India with its significant informal retail and services economy. With focus on hyperlocal content, it is possible to bring such local businesses and services under the purview of search and locate actions being performed increasingly on mobile devices. Additional layers on a detailed base map representing Art and Culture, Heritage, Food, Religion, Health, Real Estate etc. could bridge the gap between search and discovery for local residents and visitors in cities in India.
Citywise has created a one of a kind integrated public transport map that can be used as printed map, downloadable map, or in an App version that can be smartly used with hyperlocal content. This map is available now at Delhi Tourism offices and outlets.
