Abstract

There is an increasing practice of combining various sorts of data from the city to obtain a comprehensive operating picture for urban managers. The sorts of data being combined includes administrative data, sensor and transactional data, and social media data. In order for these practices to fulfil their full promises it is important that practitioners build systems which measure the correct things. It is also important that theorists develop systematic explanations for complex urban phenomena. This paper confronts the challenges of building better concepts and constructs for urban data analysis and sensing.
