The smart city movement initially encouraged cities, states, and governments to improve infrastructure by connecting with sensors for data-driven solutions. The next logical step for Smart Cities 2.0 is to turn attention toward collaboration with local residents.
By involving local communities, cities and government are empowering citizens to be involved, engaged, and informed. Citizen involvement, in combination with modern data sources and spatial analytics, can drive meaningful change.
In this webinar, Rod Erickson, from CARTO’s Public Sector team, explores the new ways that cities, states, and governments are innovating to boost local collaboration and put geospatial insights directly into the hands of their citizens. He covers how the combination of new technologies and various modern data sources are powering the next generation of spatial analysis and actionable intelligence to improve urban communities.
