Event Type: Discussion

Big Data is the term being used to describe a wide spectrum of observational or “naturally-occurring” data generated through transactional, operational, planning and social activities that are not specifically designed for research. Due to the structure and access conditions associated with this data, research and analysis of this data becomes significantly complicated. New sources of Big Data are rapidly emerging as a result of technological, institutional, social, and business innovations.

The New York Metro chapter of the American Planning Association Student Representative Committee is hosting a gathering of urban data analysts and enthusiasts.  We shall discuss the emerging sources of Big Data, the use of this data in urban research, and the challenges that arise in this use. Join us for a series of presentations followed by a panel discussion surrounding the topic of big data and how it can be used to better understand the urban environment.
