At present, Jiangsu Province has taken the lead in initiating urban lighting information management in the country. This data network covering urban lighting management in 13 cities in the province is "woven" by the Changzhou Urban Lighting Management Office. Next, this "net" will cover the whole country.
It is understood that with the economic and social development, urban lighting work in various parts of China has achieved significant results, the number of lighting facilities has increased, the energy-saving effect is obvious, and new products, new technologies, and new methods of urban lighting have been widely used. However, nationwide, these fruitful results need to be reflected through more reliable quantitative data.
The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People's Republic of China's Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development in 2016 was able to collect, analyze, and study urban lighting data in a timely, complete, and accurate manner, thereby accurately grasping the construction and operation of urban lighting, and more effectively developing integrated urban-rural lighting development, urban green lighting evaluation, and assessment. A research project on the statistical system of urban lighting and the construction of data centers was started in the year. Based on the solid foundation and outstanding innovation ability of Changzhou City Lighting Management, the project was handed over to the City Lighting Management Office for independent completion, and the problem was successfully concluded in March 2017.
The results of this project have comprehensively sorted out and standardized the statistical indicators of urban lighting, put forward the "Internet +" innovative model of urban lighting statistics, basically formed the system framework of "urban lighting statistics system", and completed the "urban lighting information system" "Prototyping work.
From the perspective of Jiangsu Province's first launch of urban lighting information management, data enrichment has effectively improved the scientific nature of management decisions. The five categories of 64 indicators in the urban lighting information system fully reflect "what, what and how" of urban lighting. The statistical analysis of these urban lighting data can not only directly reflect the current status of green-lighting construction but also look forward to the development trend of urban lighting, providing a "big data" basis for scientific decision-making in urban lighting.
