The Quito Urban Information Center CIUQ was born as an initiative of the Pichincha Architects´ College  to promote research on city issues ant to inform the comunity about the results.

CIUQ seeks to transmit knowledge and experiences through research in several areas such as: urban-spatial planning, landscaping, climate change in cities, territory, environment, architectural heritage, and related sciences.

Through our geo-portal, we share geo-referenced public information, as well as information generated by our own investigations, or by us and our collaborators network. These investigations can be combined with each other to generate new data that contribute to the development of a more humane and sustainable city.

Through strategic alliances, the Quito Urban Information Center encourages collaborative research. We have a multidisciplinary team of experts in different scientific areas: Architecture, Urbanism, Geomatics, Biogeography, Gender, Sociology, Risk, Economics, Econometrics, Geostatistics, Data Analysis, among others.
