To achieve the goal of improving the quality of life for citizens, a community must first maintain and manage their existing assets and urban public services in a cost effective manner while allowing for real time responses to challenges.

VISION

A smart community has the vision to integrate multiple information technologies to manage a city’s assets and services.

WEB GIS-CENTRIC

A Web GIS-centric Approach plays a critical role in meeting the challenges of safety, mobility, sustainability (now and in the future), economic vitality, aging infrastructure, and climate change.

OPEN SYSTEMS

The Web GIS-centric Approach is standardized with open data and data sharing. This approach is how we manage public assets to meet current and changing needs.

A Smart Community Can Easily Manage Public Assets with a Web GIS-centric Approach

A smart city or community has the vision to integrate multiple information technologies to manage a city’s assets and services. To achieve the goal of improving the quality of life for citizens, a community must first maintain and manage their existing assets and urban public services in a cost effective manner while allowing for real time responses to challenges.

Public asset management, expands the definition of infrastructure asset management by incorporating the management of all things of value to a municipal jurisdiction and its citizens' expectations. Public asset management is also applied to urban and economic development through land-use permitting and planning. All public assets are interconnected and share special proximity, possible through the use of geographic information systems (GIS).

Web GIS-centric public asset management standardizes data and allows interoperability, providing users the capability to reuse, coordinate, and share information in an efficient and effective manner by making the GIS geo-database the core depository of asset data. A GIS platform combined with information of both the "hard" and "soft" assets helps to remove the traditional silos of structured municipal functions. While the hard assets are the typical physical assets or infrastructure assets, the soft assets of a smart municipality includes other points of citizen engagement for urban development including permits, license, code enforcement, right-of-ways and other land-focused work activities.

A Smart Community with a Web GIS-centric Approach integrates technology around an Esri ArcGIS geo-database shared with Cityworks - a GIS-centric computerized maintenance management system enhanced with the best in class open system standards and tailored applications (Apps) and application programming interfaces (APIs) providing data collection, analysis and sharing.
