The number of patents issued to resident persons or corporations of a city is an indicator of innovation, which is a result of the production and use of knowledge.
The patents counted in this indicator were 'standard' and 'innovation patents. Standard patents are granted only for inventions - in other words an invention that is not an obvious thing to do for someone with knowledge and experience in the technological field of the invention. The innovation patent is granted for an incremental advance on existing technology or knowledge that makes a substantial contribution to the working of the invention.
To derive the figure for per 100,000 residents, the total number of patents granted annually to individuals and entities living or working in the municipality is divided by the municipality's population divided by 100,000. The result is a figures expressed as the number of new patents granted per 100,000 population.

This dataset contains hourly pedestrian counts since 2009 from pedestrian sensor devices located across the city. The data is updated on a monthly basis and can be used to determine variations in pedestrian activity throughout the day.
The sensor_id column can be used to merge the data with the Pedestrian Counting System - Sensor Locations dataset which details the location, status and directional readings of sensors. Any changes to sensor locations are important to consider when analysing and interpreting pedestrian counts over time.
Important to note about this dataset:
• Where no pedestrians have passed underneath a sensor during an hour, a count of zero will be shown for the sensor for that hour.
The Pedestrian Counting System helps to understand how people use different city locations at different times of day to better inform decision-making and plan for the future. A representation of pedestrian volume which compares each location on any given day and time can be found in our Online Visualisation.
