This animation serves as a supplement to a submitted publication on Smart Cities called "SMART_NET: Evaluating the Performance of Smart Cities in the Global Economic Network", by Ronald Wall, Filipa Pajević, Jurian Edelenbos and Spyridon Stavropoulos.
The study concerns an empirical analysis that integrates the realms of Smart City and World City Network literature. In this way we explore the global and regional network structures of Smart Cities within a database on worldwide foreign investments, and statistically explain these structures on the basis of Smart City urban indicators.
