Studies in Small Scale Data

Three Case Studies on Describing Individuals’ Spatial Behaviour in Cities

Lynnette Widder, Jessie Braden, Joy Ko, and Kyle Steinfeld

Big Data has been effectively mined to understand behavioural patterns in cities and to map large-scale trends predicated upon the repeated actions of many aggregated individuals. While acknowledging the vital role that this work has played in harnessing the Urban Internet of Things as a means to ensure efficient and sustainable urban systems, our work seeks to recover a scale of behavioural research associated with earlier, empirical studies on urban networks.
