As a global city, research and innovation development become essential components that Jakarta needs to pay attention to enhance its ranking. This aligns with the second indicator of global cities according to the Regional Development Planning Agency (Bappeda) of DKI Jakarta Province, which is good and continuous research and innovation capacity. Jakarta Smart City also contributes to implementing this indicator through the development and publication of dashboards. What are these dashboards and their functions? Let's find out in the following article.

Flood Monitoring Dashboard

Smartcitizens have probably heard of the Flood Control System, right? The Flood Control System, or flood control system in Jakarta, uses the Internet of Things (IoT) by installing 178 sensor devices in pump houses across Jakarta. Well, the Flood Monitoring Dashboard is an extension of this Flood Control System. The data on water level developments at these 178 monitoring points is presented to residents through this dashboard. The data includes average water level, average water flow rate, and average rainfall. The Flood Monitoring Dashboard helps residents anticipate floods and is also used to analyze conditions, potentials, and predictions related to floods in Jakarta, thus supporting more accurate data-based public policy-making by the government.

Poverty Mitigation Dashboard

This dashboard is created to display data on the population of recipients of social assistance from the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government so that social assistance programs can be evaluated and analyzed. The data is taken from the Integrated Social Welfare Data (DTKS), Carik Jakarta, and the Data for Accelerating Extreme Poverty Eradication (P3KE). The data included in the dashboard are as follows:

  • Profiles of social assistance recipients;
  • Number and percentage of people with disabilities;
  • Number and percentage of slum neighborhoods;
  • Number and percentage of Rusunawa residents;
  • Number and percentage of recipients of septic tank assistance;
  • Number of residents receiving community empowerment and SME empowerment programs;
  • Geomap Desil P3KE in the district and sub-district areas;
  • and other data.

Sub-district/Neighborhood Dashboard

Jakarta Smart City also has a dashboard that contains resident profile data. Resident profile data in each district or sub-district in DKI Jakarta Province related to demographics, education, and health are presented through the Sub-district/Neighborhood Dashboard. With this dashboard, residents, policymakers, and other stakeholders can get an overview of the conditions and characteristics of each area in Jakarta.

Stunting Dashboard

The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government launched the Moving to Overcome Stunting program in 2023. Nationally, stunting is targeted to decrease by 14 percent by 2024. Jakarta Smart City also contributes to this program by developing a stunting dashboard that contains comprehensive information related to stunting management in Jakarta. The included information is as follows:

  • Number of toddlers in Jakarta;
  • Number of toddlers with nutrition problems;
  • Number of toddlers based on intervention decisions;
  • Number of integrated health posts in DKI Jakarta;
  • Number of integrated health posts serving nutrition problems; and
  • Distribution of toddlers based on intervention decisions in districts and sub-districts.

This data can be filtered by location, gender, age category, and others. This stunting dashboard can be used to assist in analyzing stunting prevention and reduction in Jakarta and to understand the number of toddlers and their growth in each area. Smartcitizens can access the dashboard by visiting https://stunting.jakarta.go.id/.

Community Rapid Response Dashboard

If the Community Rapid Response System integrates 13 official complaint channels of the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government so that follow-up to citizen reports is more effective, then the Community Rapid Response Dashboard contains information about reports received by Regional Work Units (SKPD) and their follow-up. Here are the details of the data included in the Community Rapid Response Dashboard:

  • Number of reports;
  • Number of reporters;
  • Number of completed reports;
  • Average time to resolve reports;
  • Percentage of report status;
  • Top 10 report categories; and
  • Number of reports and number of reporters by SKPD.

To facilitate residents and stakeholders in accessing information, the dashboard is accompanied by filtering features based on SKPD, channels, categories, status, public/private, city/district, and sub-district. This dashboard can be utilized for various purposes such as evaluating the work of SKPD in resolving reports, knowing the number and trends of citizen reports within a certain period, understanding the types of problems frequently experienced by residents based on regions, and recognizing the types of problems frequently experienced by residents based on regions.

The Community Rapid Response Dashboard can only be accessed by SKPD officials in Jakarta. However, don't worry! You can also check the follow-up of your reports through the feature on the Community Rapid Response System website.

Jakarta Kini Map 

Different from others that are in the form of a dashboard, this research innovation is realized in the form of a map, namely the Jakarta Kini (JAKI) Map. The Jakarta Kini Map is created to map the distribution of various facilities and destinations in Jakarta. With the presence of the Jakarta Kini Map, residents and tourists can easily find nearby destinations and public facilities in Jakarta. The Jakarta Kini Map can be accessed by Smartcitizens through the Jakarta Smart City website or the Map feature in JAKI.

The facilities and places that can be accessed through the Jakarta Kini Map are divided into several categories, namely public facilities, transportation, health facilities, and tourist destinations.

Kelas Warga (Citizenship Class) 

Similar to the Jakarta Now Map, Kelas Warga is also a non-dashboard research innovation. Kelas Warga is a website developed to become a platform that brings together people who want to share skills and expertise with those who want to acquire those skills and expertise. Kelas Warga uses public spaces in Jakarta in its implementation, such as Integrated Child-Friendly Public Spaces (RPTRA), parks, and others. Kelas Warga helps enrich human resources quality through the improvement of hard skills and soft skills and creates a more flexible knowledge-sharing space. Interested in trying? The Kelas Warga platform can be accessed here.

The concept of open data through these dashboards allows data to be accessed, utilized, and shared by residents, academics, industries, and others for any purpose. Meanwhile, the Jakarta Now Map and Kelas Warga share data related to locations and public facilities, knowledge, and skills with the public. The knowledge and skills taught through Kelas Warga can also generate new research. With the ease of data access by Jakarta Smart City, it is hoped that it will not only involve and assist stakeholders but also support Jakarta's global city ranking.
