Big Open Data: Mining and Synthesis


I have just been awarded and ESRC Future Research Leaders grant entitled “Big Open Data: Mining and Synthesis” (BODMAS). The project is an exciting opportunity to start to get to grips with the latest developments in geographic data for the social sciences. The award will enable me to employ a researcher (job spec out soon!) to work with the latest datasets and create a number of tools and visualisations to aid in their analysis. Another key aspect of the grant is the personal development component so I am fortunate to have the chance to work with great researchers at other universities and my academic mentor, Michael Batty. I will still be based at the UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis and will be taking a break from teaching to work on the project. I plan to keep updated with project developments once it begins in October.
