Smart communities

Building smart communities with GIS technology

Smart communities have many common threads: sustainability, resilience, liveability and transparency.

Esri Australia works with local governments, businesses and NGOs to design and implement GIS technology solutions that support these smart community principles.

GIS technology delivers real-time location-based analytics capabilities which enables smart city stakeholders to understand their data in the context of the real-world.  

By visualising and interrogating data in new ways, users can develop smarter solutions, refine operational efficiencies and ultimately deliver improved services to citizens.
