Urban dashboards visualize information about the measured performance, structure, patterns and trends of cities. This paper introduces a concept of urban dashboard as a platform for participation, research, and service development. We present and reflect the development process of the City Monitor, which is a test version of an urban dashboard for the pilot cities participating in the SenCity project. The paper describes and reflects on the concept, structure, and content of the City Monitor and its participatory and iterative development process, through a case study. The case study encompasses a pilot implementation of the dashboard concept in a context of a housing area in the Finnish city of Salo, where intelligent roadway lighting was tested.
