County Talk - Esri: A Whole New Level of Smart Communities Through Geospatial Infrastructure

Jul. 12, 2019 , 4:15 pm – 4:45 pm
Paris Ballroom | Paris

The concept of smart communities is evolving as states, counties and municipalities rally around the promise of smart to reshape our collective thinking. How our communities run in the future and how citizens perceive government services depends on our ability to embrace smart. Smart communities push aside politics and preconceptions in favor of data and analytics to make decisions. High-performing organizations use location as the standard analytical approach to achieve new insight. Increasingly, smart devices, the "Internet of things" and cloud computing feed data on the locations of people, nature, vehicles, and infrastructure. If you are interested in learning about how how you seemingly unrelated trends from technology, policy, and digital transformation can change the way you solve for real world problems, this is the session for you. We will explore how:

  • Geo-enabling data and enterprise systems can bring about business intelligence
  • Communities are leveraging technological advances to support infrastructure needs, social inequities, housing issues, and transportation networks
  • Communities can lead the way through the use of the geospatial infrastructure
