    The comfort of living for an average individual plays a crucial factor in urban development. It validates a city’s ability to provide all the necessary comfort for modern livability standards. To analyze city livability, in this position paper we have proposed a system that provides a lifestyle overview through locality Indexing of a particular geographical area according to the ease of living for four particular age groups like a child, middle-aged, senior adult, and senior citizen. The system accounts for various indicators like health, transport, population, climate, pollution, crowd, etc. to yield a personalized result. The system consists of a web interface and a python backend which pulls desired data about the location from sources like Google Maps (Places API) and data.gov.in. (Indian Govt. website). This data is then mined and useful/relevant information is summarized to yield an end result. Parallel computations consisting of pattern discovery (by mining algorithms) and data aggregation are carried on a cloud service maintaining a local data store for processed queries. The generated end result is then presented to the user in the form of visualization charts.
