In context of the Internet of Things, most urban environments are already equipped with sensors that make all captured data available in the cloud.
A game changer is the publicly availability of satellite data.
Find opportunities that take advantage of the combination of both, satellite and IoT data to lift isolated applications from individual Smart City initiatives to truly connected Smart Regions, Smart Countries and beyond.
