A smarter city utilizes all data available to it in order to improve the livelihood of its inhabitants and the ecosystem as a whole. A smarter city is always looking for new innovations to be more green, efficient, and inclusive. These innovations will differ between areas depending on climate, topography, or societal issues. In America the major issues include the uncontrolled and unsustainable sprawl of cities. Smarter cities will find ways to encourage denser developments with more access to mass transit. Data can be analyzed to determine areas people are most likely to develop and policies can be created to minimize the impact created by them.
