Seminar - Build a Smart City with the Science of Where

  • HKIP Office Unit 201, 2/F, Prosperity Millennia Plaza, 663 King’s Road, North Point, Hong Kong (map)

About the Seminar :

A Smart City is about connecting people with right process, information and technology to drive improved quality of life, innovation and better choices.

This presentation will suggest the optimized development of a Smart City by applying the Science of Where. The Science of Where is about using geographic science to organize data and the technology of Geographic Information System (GIS) to unlock understanding through data visualization, exploration, analytics and sharing. Therefore better outcomes can be achieved by data-driven communications, decisions and collaboration.

A number of worldwide examples will be presented to demonstrate that smart cities can get the most of the Science of Where by exploiting a combination of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, big data, inclusive apps, and community engagement to gain previously unimagined insight.
