Building smart communities with GIS technology

Smart communities have many common threads: sustainability, resilience, liveability, transparency.

Esri Malaysia works with local governments to design and implement solutions that enhance these traits – together building smart communities with the help of GIS technology.

Councils nationwide are turning to the ArcGIS platform to refine operational efficiencies and deliver improved services to citizens.

The software puts important information in the hands of those who need it, and places local businesses in the best position to succeed.

A smart community embraces new approaches to building information, improving collaboration, streamlining processes and analysing trends.
