CASE STUDY CITIES OF BIG DATA Chicago is working the big data pipeline from both ends: Not only does the city plan to glean in- sights from the analysis of its open data, but it aims to create new ways to generate and col- lect its data flows. In July, Chicago will mount sensors on light poles through- out the city, the first stage of a big data collection system whose platform the city will open up to other jurisdictions. Over the past two years the city has placed a growing em- phasis on big data, starting with the appointment of a director of data analytics in 2012. Since then, data coordinators have been appointed in city agen- cies, part of an open data execu- tive order from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. And to spread the town's data mantra, the non-profit Chicago Architecture Foundation re- cently presented an exhibition entitled, Chicago: City of Big Data, designed to generate pub- lic awareness about links be- tween the city's data resources and its living spaces. Located in the Railway Ex- change Building's Atrium, the Chicago Model's integrated lighting visualizes the city's data sets through color and ani- mation.
