Welcome to the Big Data in Transport Library

NOESIS project is building and maintaining a collection of Big Data use cases in the field of transport and logistics – the so called Big Data in Transport Library (BDTL). The Library constitutes a reference point as for the first time Transport Challenges will be associated with Big Datasets, Big Data applications and the potential value anticipated. It is the first organized database of “Transport Use Cases – Big Data technologies / applications – Value generated”.

Why should you contribute to our Big Data in Transport Library?

Private sector

NOESIS will help understand how to evaluate Big Data investments in transport. When transport authorities and transport operators have evidence (provided by NOESIS) to decide on which Big Data projects to invest in, they will be more confident to proceed with such investments. Therefore, more stable and stronger demand should be expected for Big Data solutions. If you are providing such solutions, NOESIS will help you demonstrate their value to your potential customers.


To assist us in optimising the NOESIS tools for decision-making, we are asking for documented information on projects you were involved, and on Big Data tools and methods that you used. As an acknowledgement for your help, your name and logo will be visible in our website and publicity material (only if you wish so of course). And the more quality information you provide, the more visible your logo will be (up to a limit, see example below).

Public sector

NOESIS will help understand how to evaluate Big Data investments in transport. NOESIS will provide you with evidence-based guidance to decide on which Big Data projects to invest in. It will help you choose the most suitable solutions for your needs, and point to optimal scales of implementation.

To assist us on implementing the NOESIS tools for your decision-making needs, we are asking for documented information on projects you conducted, and on Big Data tools and methods that you used. Your information will help us tailor our tools to your needs.

What is NOESIS?

NOESIS is a two-year research project supported by the European Commission. The NOESIS project partners are committed to develop the best possible tools to meet the needs of European public sector and industry, without favouring any specific solutions or business cases. All information provided by external parties will be handled with the appropriate confidentiality safeguards, and may be visible to other parties only after the explicit solution of its provider.
