State of Australian Smart Cities

Smart Cities of Down Under

This project places all major Australian local government areas (LGAs) under the smart city microscope. In total 180 LGAs—located in greater capital city statistical areas (GCCSA), and located outside GCCSA but with over 100,000 population—are included in the analysis. The findings of the 2020 study present a snapshot of the smart city performances of Australian LGAs under three categories–i.e., Leading, Following, Developing.
