Opportunities in ASEAN Smart Cities Project (Geospatial)


ASEAN Members States (AMS) recognise the need for urbanisation to embark on a Smart Nation journey to make cities more liveable and sustainable, and to improve citizens’ lives. Singapore, as Chair for ASEAN in 2018, launched the ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN), with the theme of “Resilience and Innovation” to identify digital solutions for rapid urbanisation, deliver integrated responsive public services and maximise job opportunities.


The collective ASEAN vision of a smart city captured in the ASEAN Smart Cities Framework has identified 26 ASEAN cities for collaboration, investment and forged partnerships with the public and private sectors to kickstart the implementation. In this context, geographical and information systems or GIS-enabled tools hold an important implementation tool that enable cities to plan and coordinate among agencies more productively and efficiently. The impact of each decision may be small but it has a large positive on the overall quality of the whole community.

This seminar aims to provide an overview for Smart Cities projects relating to Geospatial which has close collaboration with city government, involving projects from ASCN and other smart cities projects in ASEAN. Mayor Bernard Faustino La Madrid Dy of Cauayan City from Philippines, Mr Setiaji from Head of the Jakarta Smart City and Prof. Dr. Suhono Supangkat, President of Smart Indonesia Initiatives Association from Indonesia will share more on their approach and opportunities in their city-specific projects.

Why we plan for Digitally Twinned Smart Cities in the Philippines?

Cauayan City is the first Smarter City in the Philippines, and had led the movement towards Smarter and Sustainable cities for the Philippines, supported by the Philippines Department of Science and Technology. Cauayan City is one of the 3 cities in this pioneering Concept for ASEAN, together with Jakarta and Singapore. In this sharing, Mayor Bernard will explain how geospatial applications play an important Concept for Smart Cities in Philippines.

Example Collaboration between Indonesia and Singapore - Developing 3-D Model for the Banding Command Centre".

The Smart Indonesia Initiatives Association (SIIA) signed an MOU for Inclusive and Sustainable Cities with Smart Cities Network in September 2018 at the Bandung Command Centre. As a follow-up, Singapore company G Element and a local Indonesian start-up ("Indismart") collaborated in a project to develop the 3-D Model of the Bandung Command Centre, integrated to the existing CCTVs. Prof Suhono will share about this project and other potential collaboration with SIIA and his start-up community for more Smart Cities in Indonesia and ASEAN.
