Mon, 2013-02-25 16:43 -- Liz Enbysk

City leaders and community participants looking for guidance on how to move the smart city discussion into a call for action will find useful advice in this paper. The framework proposed describes a process that will help key stakeholders and city/community participants 1) understand how cities operate, 2) define city objectives and stakeholder roles, and 3) understand the role of ICT within physical city assets. It also outlines how cities can establish a standard “catalog” system for recording, measuring, and collating city data, and for making it easily accessible for efficient, effective implementation and management of smart city solutions for economic, social, and environmental gain.
