The World Council on City Data and their partner Philips Lighting have jointly created this report using examples from smart cities initiatives like Los Angeles and Buenos Aires. This report presents a measurement framework that can monitor and evaluate city-level benefits from smart and connected lighting investments, through the unique opportunity afforded by WCCD ISO 37120 certified city data.
