These are the 100 smartest cities the world, 2017

The Danish capital Copenhagen is pretty smart. It might even be the “smartest city” in the world, according to a new ranking released by EasyPark app… But just in case you’re curious:

Copenhagen beat out Singapore (No. 2) and Sweden’s capital, Stockholm (No. 3) for the “smartest city” honor.

Don’t feel too bad Zurich (No. 4), Boston (No. 5) or Tokyo (No. 6) — New York City and Washington D.C. lagged further behind holding the 24th and 28th spots, respectively.

Well, that should make us all feel a little better.

Only 2 Indian cities have ranked among the 100 smartest in the world, New Delhi took the highest rank for an Indian city, scoring 90th overall, with Mumbai coming in at number 93 on the list.

Riyadh in Saudi Arabia ranked 99th and Mexico City ranked 100.

Defining “SMART CITY” in a “TECHNOLOGOCAL” rather than “INTELLIGENCE” sense, EasyPark ranked 100 cities around the world based on 19 different factors, from business ecosystem, car sharing services, citizen participation in elections, clean energy, digitalization of government, level of education, environment protection, internet speed, living dtandard, public transport, smart building, smart parking, smartphone penetration, traffic congestion, urban planning, 4G LTE, wifi hotspots, and even waste disposal.
