The Smart City Concept, has been alive from Quite Sometime in the country, through Intelligent Traffic and Transport, Dial 100 and City Surveillance, Municipal e-Governance, etc. The Name " Smart City " provided it a goal and agglomeration of the smart subsystems. Now we know why we are doing it, now we know how different systems need to speak to each other. I have been a part of the most of this mentioned above, along with GIS.
Currently I am working in ESRI India in Industry team of Smart City. My role is to provide a GIS based solution for Smart Technologies related to Smart City, including Citizen's portal, GIS based Water and Waste Water Management, GIS based Mobility Plan etc. Prior to this, I was in Vayam Technologies and mainly entrusted with the role of Business Development in Smart Technologies. This is where I got the Opportunity to be part of the System Integration projects of Smart ITS, Dial 100, City Surveillance, Disaster Management, Geospatial Technologies and e-municipality.
