Big Data in transport use cases


NOESIS is building 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 will link Big Data applications with the potential value anticipated. To our knowledge, it will be the first library of its kind.

To assist us on building this library, we are asking for some brief information on projects you conducted, and on Big Data tools and methods that you used.

There are 9 questions in this survey. This is going to take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
