Big Data So What? Let’s Get Somewhere
Too many numbers can make us numb. Our ability to collect large amounts of data often outstrips the ability to analyze it or take action based on findings. There also are challenges of determining how much data to collect, how granular it should be, how to store it and how to set up systems to process it. Hear from transit agencies that have leveraged big data to inform decisions that empower staff across the agency. Learn how they’ve used data to identify long-term trends, track key metrics and identify root causes of changes in performance. Also hear about realtime solutions to reducing traffic incidents and how big data can guide decision-making about equitable transit-oriented development (TOD). Let’s take the numbers and get somewhere!
