Smart Cities: Seletion of Indicators for Vitória

Since 2007, urban cities have become the main living environment of humanity,
as opposed to rural areas. Thus, with the increase of urban areas, it is appropriate to develop
techniques for the orderly and integrated growth of the cities. The concept of Smart City
arises in this context. Considering the particular challenges of each city to become a Smart
City, it is necessary to select specific indicators to meet these different requirements. This
article aims to select the most adequate Smart City. The research began with a literature review in order to understand the state of
the art theme and identify the existing assessment tools. After this stage, the European
Smart Cities assessment tool was selected and studied to serve as a reference for the
selection process of indicators. Afterwards, the indicators were selected based on suitability,
clarity and availability criteria, and weights were assigned by their relevance, based on their
compliance with the strategic goals of the city. This study suggests the indicators to measure
need to improve the tool with the addition of
indicators that are more suitable to local needs.
