Bru-Net workshop | Spatial Big Data in urban environments. What do they unveil (and hide) in the case of Brussels?

1 mars 2019
UCLouvain - Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgique)

The seminar will discuss the contribution of spatial big data and their relevance to urban studies. The day will be an opportunity to highlight the conclusions of the four-year interdisciplinary Bru-Net research project, which focused in particular on the case of Brussels (Bru-) through the prism of different types of interaction networks (-Net). What are the challenges about spatial big data today in urban studies? What are the advantages and the limits of these new data, in terms of thematic results and methodological aspects? Do these new spatialized data make it possible to better understand the structures and dynamics of cities with regard to mobility and transportation, infrastructure, and built-up features? Scientific presentations and discussions by researchers of different profiles will allow to learn and discuss about the results obtained during the research project, while creating a space for debate between scientists from various disciplines and experts coming from the public and the private sector.
