GIS and Smart City Workshop at EIFER

A workshop on “GIS and Smart City” was held in the European Institute for Energy Research (EIFER) on 10th July 2018. The goal of this workshop was to demonstrate our expertise in Geographic Information System (GIS) and Smart Cities activities, learn use cases and technologies from local private and public institutes, as well as build collaborations with them.

It was organized in cooperation with ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute), and with the presentations from EIFER, ESRI, City Karlsruhe and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Around 30 participants from different departments and institutes from City Karlsruhe, KIT, Hochschule Karlsruhe and EIFER took part. The morning session was dedicated to scientific talks and the afternoon session to deep dive into the technologies (see workshop agenda).

A real-time interactive survey with the participants also revealed the most important elements (citizens, data, platforms), sectors (infrastructure, energy), and factors (open data, citizen participation) of Smart City related research.
