The Smart City Air Challenge rewards communities that capitalize on important technology trends like the Internet of Things (IoT), real-time data collection, advanced analytics, and open data exchange.

Esri solutions also provide advanced data analytics and open data portals that allow agencies to view and share information, which are all objectives of the EPA challenge.
