Building smart communities with GIS technology

Smart communities have many common threads: sustainability, resilience, liveability, transparency.

Esri Singapore works with local governments to design and implement solutions that enhance these traits – together building smart communities with the help of GIS technology.

Councils nationwide are turning to ArcGIS to refine operational efficiencies and deliver improved services to citizens.

The platform has also been utilised to create 3D maps of Singapore, enabling decision-makers to visualise how the capital will look in the future and predict community needs based on these models.

ArcGIS technology puts important information in the hands of those who need it, and places local businesses in the best position to succeed.

The end result is a smart community embracing new approaches to building information, improving collaboration, streamlining processes and analysing trends.

Learn more about the opportunities available by watching the free Esri webinar, Every Community can be a Smart Community.
