The eThekwini Transport Authority (ETA) is currently developing and pursuing smart city strategies and interventions to make eThekwini more caring and liveable. A key component of smart cities is to use data smartly. This includes measuring, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of current projects and programmes. To this end a GIS based tool comprising databases from various sectors has been developed to allow the ETA to research and evaluate the effectiveness of past and current management, maintenance and sector specific strategies.
