Big Data impact on Smart Cities

Tactical urbanism

Mining data to re-invent the city

nation projet

Place de la Nation (Paris) refurbishing project 

What if cities could:
Discover the variations of frequentation of a defined area;
Understand the most commonly-used paths for bikes, pedestrians, cars, buses;
Segment visitors by type (workers, tourists, residents)

... And use these analyses to select the best refurbishing project for a defined area?

Thanks to mobile and/or Wi-Fi data, it is possible to understand the population flows within a city, an area or a mall. These analysis are of great values prior to refurbish an area or reorganise a transportation path. Paris city used Big Data to understand the consequences of a modification in road organisation prior to make the changes.
