Overview

There is a long history of governments, businesses, science and citizens producing and utilising data in order to monitor, regulate, profit from, and make sense of the urban world.  Recently, we have entered the age of big data, and now many aspects of everyday life are being captured as data, mediated through data-driven technologies, normalized in infrastructures, and augmented with visualization techniques and dashboards.

This book, the companion volume to 2016's Code and the City, offers the first critical reflection on the relationship between data, data practices and the city, and how we come to know and understand cities through data. It will be crucial reading for those who wish to understand and conceptualize urban big data, data-driven urbanism, and the development of smart cities.
