Join us for this meetup and networking event exploring transport data hosted by the Urban Big Data Centre


This Urban Big Data Centre Meetup networking event will bring together people interested in and working with transportation data.

Understanding transport is crucial to understanding the spaces that we live and work in. Access to transport can affect everything from housing and employment to the economy and environment. This series of networking events aims to bring together people working with transport data, to share knowledge and experiences and create useful links across a range of data users and industries.

Currently planned presentations:

Joining the dots: Cycling Infrastructure and Behaviour Change - Angus Rodney, Love to Ride

A short introduction to using the UBDC CCTV dataset - Luis Serra, Urban Big Data Centre

More speakers will be announced. If you would like to bring a topic for discussion, please let us know during registration.

After the sharing session, there will be time for networking and continuing any interesting conversations from the discussions. Refreshments will be provided.
