EMBRACING SPATIAL DATA IN THE SMART CITY ERA

In business, location matters.
For better services, for greater products, for more on-point strategic decisions.

 

This Challenge aims to unveil the hidden values of spatial information.

 

Participants are invited to submit innovative proposals and demonstrate how the integration of

Common Spatial Data Infrastructure (CSDI)’s spatial data, Hong Kong Science Park’s

available data, together with IT infrastructure systems, can 

transform community experiences in Hong Kong Science Park, or furthermore across Hong Kong!
