Big Data in Transportation

Fast expanding data availability on a variety of transportation applications is bringing unprecedented opportunities.

Transport practitioners and related industry are increasingly faced with performing analytics on “big data” containing millions of observations from sources such as ticketing systems, smart phones, GPS and sensors.
