COLLOQUIUM Francisco Rowe (University of Liverpool).- Big Data and Human Geography: Current Practice and Challenges.

Organitza: Centre d'Estudis Demogràfics

Lloc: Virtual

Hora: 12:00 - 13:00

Technological advances have enabled the emerge of ‘Big Data’ through the production, processing, analysis and storage of large volumes of digital data. Data that could not previously be stored or used to be captured using analogue devices can now be digitally recorded. This paper identifies and discusses the existing and future challenges and opportunities of Big Data for human geography. Big Data offer high geographic and temporal granularity, extensive coverage and instant information to transform our understanding of human interactions and our social world. At the same time, Big Data represent major epistemological, methodological and ethical challenges which need to be addressed to realise these opportunities. I identify the key challenges and actions for the future of human geography emerging from the use of Big Data.
