Digital Data Standards
The Smart City concept is a tech savvy way to address issues of unplanned urbanization. A comprehensive definition would be “a data-driven urban environment aimed at sustainability, transparency and efficiency, driven by an ICT enabled model rendering a visual framework, and a seamless use of disruptive technologies in various application scenarios, served by an intelligent community framework”.
The Doral Digital Smart City is aware that data is a prime asset in the knowledge society and it therefore believes that it is socially perceived as a common asset. It promotes this view in order to achieve the democratic, open, transparent and regulated management of this resource.
GIS is central to Smart Cities
Smart City GIS is an integrated cross-sectoral platform to collect, manage, compile, analyze and visualize spatio-temporal information for sustainable urban planning, development and management.
GIS is deployed at every stage of planning and development of a Smart City. The underlying framework is served by ICT (Information and Communications Technologies), while the focus is on the ‘spatial’ or GIS. The common platform operates through all stages of the life cycle – from modeling, planning, building to managing – across the full spectrum of functionalities.
The Doral Digital Smart City roadmap is an innovative partnership between companies, governments, knowledge institutions and the residents of Doral. A strong geospatial framework drives the focus on sustainability and open geo data policies.
Doral’s partnership with ESRI has ushered in a new era in interactive maps that provide our residents real-time interactive GIS data across a wide range of city services.
