Smart City

Is this simply the tech world’s equivalent of the emperor’s new clothes? Are we dressing up old concepts with new terminology? Or can we truly start to understand how our cities are evolving and support the planners and developers of new cities?

Our responsibility as geographers, therefore is to take the value of location and involve it as early as possible in this process.
