Geospatial dashboards have attracted increasing attention from both user communities and academic researchers since the late 1990s. Dashboards can gather, visualize, analyze and advise on urban performance to support sustainable development of smart cities. We conducted a critical review of the research and development of geospatial dashboards, including the integration of maps, spatial data analytics, and geographic visualization for decision support and real-time monitoring of smart city performance. The research about this kind of system has mainly focused on indicators, information models including statistical models and geospatial models, and other related issues. This paper presents an overview of dashboard history and key technologies and applications in smart cities, and summarizes major research progress and representative developments by analyzing their key technical issues. Based on the review, we discuss the visualization model and validity of models for decision support and real-time monitoring that need to be further researched, and recommend some future research directions.
