This becomes the mainstay of ‘smart’ management providing resource optimization, open and participatory governance and efficient management of city infrastructure.
GIS technology and processing in the cloud is on the way to becoming the next big trend. The various functionalities of the cloud can be suitably tailored to fit into an organization’s geospatial workflow.
