Urban Securipedia came into existence under the EU FP7 project VITRUV and was designed to provide extensive security-related information and tooling for those involved in the design of urban areas (i.e. urban planners). Later, as a result of the EU ISF project PRoTECT, Urban Securipedia was updated to include information and tooling for protecting events held in public space against terrorist attacks.
An outline of the Urban Securipedia content is given in a Structure of the knowledge base.
