Abstract

Ubiquitous cities, or U-cities, are defined as places where public and private services can be delivered and received anywhere and at anytime. The goal of this chapter is to identify the challenges and opportunities that arise in the development of strategic plans and policies that address the problems associated with rapid global urban population growth. This chapter focuses on the potential of recently developed information and communication technologies and on the utilization of these technologies in conjunction with emerging pervasive ubiquitous geographic information techniques. It also discusses the challenges existing cities face in striving for intelligent and sustainable development as they move toward becoming ubiquitous cities.
