The URBAN-GEO BIG DATA project will contribute to improving the exploitation of new data from EO and mobile sensors, for a better understanding of a number of urban dynamics. It will extract information from data, and represent it for better comprehension aiming at an improved public engagement. Acknowledgement: URBAN-GEO BIG DATA is a Project of National Interest (PRIN) funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) – id. 20159CNLW8.
