With half of all Smart City KPIs focussed on these priorities what underlies trends and predictions?
- Time - past, now and future
- Contextual data
You can see this being brought together in Location Intelligence projects like PERT- Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness - an international coalition empowering global resiliency planning through the production of accessible platforms that can convey climate data as meaningful information to non-specialists.
A location intelligence platform like CARTO that allows operational people as well as GIS developers to access disparate internal and external data sources opens up the opportunity to combine human intuition with predictive analytics for the better management of smart cities
By 2020, half of all the smart city objectives will include climate change, resilience and sustainability key performance indicators (KPIs), according to Gartner, Inc. Cities are defining new objectives and placing them into tangible programs. This creates measurable outcomes that meet the targets agreed upon at the COP 21 in Paris to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. "With the Horizon 2020 goals of energy efficiency, carbon emission reductions and renewable energy in mind, many cities in Europe have launched energy sustainability, resource management, social inclusion and community prosperity initiatives," said Bettina Tratz-Ryan, research vice president at Gartner. Ms. Tratz-Ryan discussed how Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and the ability to analyze data in a contextualized way, can accelerate the development of smart city execution during Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, which is taking place here through Thursday.
