- Technology or Urban Intelligence? Smart Cities do not only involve the use of technology, but these technologies can also help improve the quality of life for their citizens.
- Studying cities, as containers of information and human capital and not just as buildings and infrastructure. To that end, in this second course, we will pay particular attention to the three aspects of smart cities which relate to people's quality of life and governance (Smart People, Smart Living and Smart Governance).
- Case studies, best practices, plus a workshop which will review the potential indicators that help measure a city's progress in terms of those areas.
- Basic knowledge of geographic information systems, their graphic and alphanumeric data structure, their components and their working criteria and procedures.
- Tools for designing databases, entering georeferencing procedures, while allowing the development of a GIS and related spatial analysis.
- An urban and territorial structure that is essential for a synthetic perspective at a general territorial or municipal level using thematic maps.
- Spatial analysis in vector and raster formats and applications crossed between both.
- Basic concepts of Remote Sensing, and creating vectorial territorial and municipal databases and viewing them on maps.
The Smart City Project This project consists of creating an innovative platform such as an app or similar which will facilitate transformation towards a smart city using GIS technologies.
