Esri India, a joint venture between NIIT Technologies Limited, and Esri Inc., one of the leading Geographic Information System (GIS) software and solutions providers, shared details of its offerings for planning smart cities in India.
Esri India has introduced Geodesign, a key framework for conceptualising and planning for Smart Cities and associated tools. These tools include GeoPlanner, a specialised application for land based planning, CityEngine, a 3D design tool with visualisation technology to improve urban planning, and GeoEvent Processor which captures feeds from multiple sources for real time processing.
