Big Data and Urban Informatics


Vonu Thakuriah, Nebiyou Tilahun and Moira Zellner organized a very successful conference in August 2014 in Chicago. CASA had two papers at the meeting and you can drill down and find them in the Proceedings which you get access to here. Its a big file of 40MB so it may take time to download. Ollie O’Brien gave a paper on our work with dashboards and Greg Erhardt talked about his work with smart card and digital data pertaining to the use of transit in the San Francisco Bay Area. But there are many other papers in these proceedings which are well worth looking at as they provide a very useful snapshot of the state of the art which is still very much a moving target. The Workshop on Big Data and Urban Informatics was funded by NSF, featuring papers on urban data analysis, management, planning, social equity, sustainability and more.
