Leading the urban transformation with GIS

Leading the urban transformation with GIS

Geographic information system is playing a huge role in initiatives such as Digital India, Smart Cities Mission, AMRUT and thus driving digital & urban transformation in India. GIS is helping in unlocking the full potential of data to improve operational and business results. Cities are using GIS for property taxation, water distribution, smart waste management, public safety, emergency response and management, and in health and education services.

The summit, during Esri India User Conference, will provide an opportunity for key stakeholders leading and driving the urban transformation on how GIS is being leveraged across the city functions and citizen services. You may also join the plenary session of the Esri India User Conference to connect with business leaders and innovators just like yourself from other industries such as government, defense, public safety, academia and environment and see how they are leveraging GIS.
