With India’s young and rapidly growing population, the country needs thriving cities that are sustainable in the long run. If handled well, India can reap significant benefits from urbanization which is projected to account for 40% of India’s population by 2030. To make sure that tomorrow’s cities provide opportunities for all, it is essential to understand that the concept of inclusive cities involves multiple spatial, social and economic factors. The Smart Cities track will feature experts in Smart Governance, Inclusivity, Sustainability, Mobility, Safety, Communication, Infrastructure, Health and Education. We will provide a platform that will enable us to drive technology to think, recognize, learn, problem-solve and carry out decision-making in the development of Smart Cities in India using geospatial strategy as the base.

GeoSmart 2019 will bring together prominent leaders of the government and the industry to help understand the potential of machine learning, IoT and geospatial big data in the planning of cities that provide health, education, opportunities and amenities for all.
