Big Useful Data

It's not enough to just talk about the "Big Data" buzzword.  Large, complex data sets that are difficult to process, or see trends are useless Big Data.  How much of the data is useful?

Pedestrian Data

How many people are walking right here?  How long did they dwell?  Did they get close to a meter and look at it?.  What's a typical 3pm in a location look like?  Is today typical or different?  Are policy changes having the desired effects re-routing your pedestrian flow?  If you create a ride sharing drop-off zone are you having the desired effect, or creating more congestion?  This is useful data you'll be able to analyze.
