The world’s cities are increasingly being challenged to find new ways to solve problems and support smart city initiatives, and the rapid growth of available digital data holds many answers. But in order to unlock the full potential of this data to solve problems, the power of location is critical. The science of geography and the technology of GIS helps cities integrate, analyze and understand all types of data through a common visual language. In this session, learn about future-focused technologies that cities are using today, like real-time data analytics, beautifully interactive 3D maps, innovative collaboration platforms and spatially-enabled machine learning techniques. Real-world examples and demonstrations will bring these concepts to life, and show attendees what is possible now using The Science of Where.
