Interdisciplinary Data Resources to Address the Challenges of Urban Living

In April 2016 the Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC) at the University of Glasgow hosted an EPSRC-funded 1.5 day workshop to explore the methodological challenges and innovations in urban data and to introduce UBDC’s exciting integrated Multimedia City Data (iMCD) project. 

The workshop, entitled ‘Interdisciplinary Data Resources to Address the Challenges of Urban Living’, was attended by a group of nearly fifty individuals, comprising academics involved in collecting these novel sources of urban data, as well as methodological researchers, and public and private sector representatives of end-users. The event was arranged into a number of distinct sessions in order to introduce and highlight the wide variety of applications and ongoing work relating to urban data and to stimulate discussion on subjects including end use, interdisciplinary collaboration and issues of privacy and ethics.
