Pages: 51 - 55
Smart City concept is being adopted by many governments to implement sustainable solutions and improve the quality of life of the citizens. This paper presents a data oriented view of a smart city by studying the characteristics of data generated by various sources in the city. This data would be used to build smart city components related to transport, healthcare, energy and environment. Datafication of smart city reveals that the data to be managed is Big Data. Hence, we further review how big data can be used for smart city solutions, and provide a process flow and mapping for some of the smart city components. © 2017 IEEE.
