In particular, sensor networks and Internet of Things (IoT) serve as the infrastructure of many Smart City applications and services, and a lot of real-time data with location and time stamp will be generated from them. In the seminar, Mr. Leung demonstrated the powerful capability of Esri ArcGIS to integrate and process real-time location data with an interactive map view for a wide range of applications.
