1Spatial Launches The Little Book Of Smart Cities

November 19, 2014  - By 0 Comments

1Spatial plc, which specializes in spatial big data management, has launched The Little Book of Smart Cities, designed to provide insight into smart cities and how authoritative geospatial data is a foundation for success.

The Little Book of Smart Cities features case studies and industry research, and explains how spatial data are fundamental to the concept of smart cities. The book details how the use of authoritative geospatial data is at the heart of a smart city. It can help city councils manage street lighting or trash-collection timetables, as well as providing the underlying information on which to build large infrastructure projects.

The Little Book of Smart Cities provides an insight into how authoritative spatial data benefits cities in a connected world,” commented Alison Masters, CMO, 1Spatial. “At 1Spatial we work with the users and creators of some of the largest big spatial databases to help smart city innovators solve the challenges they face. This book shines a light on spatial data and reveals how it is the very foundations on which a smart city is built.”

1Spatial will also be showcasing 1Spatial Management Suite and Elyx GIS platform at the Smart Cities Expo, together with its consulting services, and highlighting how these can be used to help make cities smarter.

1Spatial already has a wide offering in the arena of smart cities and has provided solutions for a number of locations, including Moorabool Shire Council in Australia and the Municipality of Schaerbeek in Belgium, which feature in The Little Book of Smart Cities. 1Spatial has a portfolio of customers across national, regional and local government, transport, utilities, land management and National Mapping Authorities.

Han Wammes, 1Spatial Business Development Manager will be speaking in the UK Pavilion at 10.30am on Nov. 19 on the subject of “Geospatial Data: The Foundation of Smart Cities” by invitation of UK Trade and Investment. Han will look at how nearly all smart city projects have one common foundation — geospatial data. This can range from the simplest data feed to a complex, multi-partner integrated transport system.

Smart City Expo World Congress is a benchmark in smart cities. The event introduces debate and shares pioneering approaches, highlighted by the speakers. It is a meeting point and networking opportunity for companies, government, entrepreneurs and research centers to show off their solutions, learn, share and inspire to support the development of the cities of the future.

Pick up a copy of The Little Book of Smart Cities at Stand #F.621 and meet the 1Spatial Team. Nov. 18-20 at the Gran Via Venue, Barcelona, Spain. If you are not attending the event but would like to get your free copy of the book, visit the website.
