The municipality of Eindhoven and Shintō Labs have developed a data application that can track activity of companies which could possibly ask for an environmental control. The application combines multiple data sources and determines, based on the algorithms, not only where the companies are located, but also whether or not risks might entail. The system presents these companies on a map, ranking them based on the level of risk. This “risk factor” is determined by an algorithm. Through this, the municipality can decide to have these companies visited by supervisors to determine whether there is a violation.
