Summer School (Level 2 – Advanced) on Smart City Traffic and Transportation Planning focusses on developing capacity and enhancing the perspectives of the geospatial aspects of Traffic and Transportation Planning.

Transportation is one of the important needs of people and economic development of any country. Urbanization and mobility are interlinked, and it is one of the most serious challenges before the planners for sustainable development. Geospatial technology has emerged as one of the most important state-of -art for planning and development, especially the high resolution satellite data helps to analyze the existing trend and pattern as well as future implications through geo-spatial modelling. Most of the cities in the world are facing traffic congestion problem due to unplanned and unorganized development of the city. These traffic problems can be addressed through the geospatial technology. ITS technology is one which fully integrated technology to solve the traffic problems in the urban areas and technology that will help in reduction of congestion. The proposed program will benefit the stake holders like transportation planners, urban planners, policy makers, academicians and researchers through deliberations and practical work. This will also provide an insight to recent trends in traffic and transportation planning for smart city with the help of geospatial technologies
