"Urban informatics" refers to the practice of generating, assessing, and re-purposing information about the urban environment to be useful for human understanding and action.
Relevant to Appropedia, the idea is that good use of urban informatics could improve the quality and responsiveness of urban planning and allow a high quality of life whilst simultaneously moving towards sustainable cities.
