Some indexes to reflect the city's age-friendliness may help the local government to monitor and improve the policy practice and these information also should be open and interactive to the citizen who caring about this issue. And the R language provides a great flexibility in dealing with the diversity of the file formats from government. Besides, the data visualization and web application supported by R can make the analysis result more understandable and interactive.

In the end, we create a shiny application with interactive Plotly to let the result easily be approached. The result may show how R can easily to utilize the government data and provide a great application turning WHO guideline into a monitor tool helping the government practice in age-friendly policy.
