“Smart city” is a very popular trend for modern Europe. Nearly every large city aspires to become more technologically advanced in order to raise quality of life and security of its citizens. Thus, various city departments and services, such as traffic services, police and fire departments, have constant need for receiving complete up-to-date heterogeneous information from various sources and for analyzing it in real-time scale. The concept of situation centre for management and control of city life, described in this paper, is one of the ways of reaching that goal. Situation centre for monitoring and intelligent decision making support is intended for surveillance (observation) of objects of different nature and associated situations. Situation centre supports monitoring, prediction and modelling of development of various situation of local and global scale in real time operation mode with cartographic representation. In this paper we demonstrate the functionality of situation centre on the example of prototype installed in the Bonch-Bruevich Saint-Petersburg State University of Telecommunications.
