What are smart cities? A catchy phrase or a real movement for change, or something in-between? It is true that the challenges facing cities are real: aging infrastructure, rapid development, climate change, and populations growing at unprecedented rates. To keep pace, future cities must be more agile and inclusive. City agencies are looking to do more with less, and to do it more efficiently. Cities have become testing grounds for tech innovation, and increasingly citizens are leading the process or collaborating directly with city agencies.
Citizen-driven initiatives are emerging in the forefront of smart cities planning and development. As a smart cities leader, CartoDB empowers citizens and governments—from biking and housing apps to risk platforms and custom city dashboards. See why CartoDB is a smart cities leader powering intelligent cities around the world, including New York City, Barcelona, London, Buenos Aires, Mexico City, and Melbourne.
