In recent years, development of spatial data infrastructures (SDI) played a crucial role in urban development and it has become the important platform for exchanging and sharing spatial data information to facilitate the availability of resources in the proper planning of smart cities and projects. The purpose of this review paper is to discuss the different aspects of smart cities and urban development projects. Spatial information has become the advance technology to develop any smart projects for sharing and exchanging the information. Firstly, various technologies that are needed to focus on for smart cities such as spatial data infrastructure, big data and smart city, Role of GIS technology, importance of information and communication technologies (ICTs), IoT. Thereafter emphasize the objective of a smart city and review different technologies which make infrastructure development possible. SDI assessment is needed to understand the different tasks to be performed. At last, we focus on the challenges to achieve sustainable development projects for smart cities.
