The concept of City Information Modelling (CIM), defined by Thompson et al. (2016) as the practical application of digital data in relation to city planning and management, collaborating with citizens. It was initially presented by Khemlani (2005), who addressed the theme as an extension of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) concept for cities, which would more effectively assist in dealing with natural disasters, contributing to a precise and digital replica of the city that could be subjected to simulations of holistic decisions and analysis. At the same time, the concept of Smart Cities which, according to the European Union, is a place where traditional networks and services become more efficient, with the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for the benefit of its population, arose as a result of the social challenges such as increasing urban population, transportation needs, health and safety (ABELLA et al., 2017). The present research project intends to explore the potential applications of the CIM concept in cities of consolidated urbanization, related to the concept of Smart Cities. It seeks to contribute to the development of strategies to implement these advances in cities of consolidated urbanization, aiming at the application of technological and sustainable solutions that meet the local needs.
