Smart Cities covers such a wide range of initiatives so its good to see that the value of Uber Trip data will be accessible to help analyse, visualise and gain new insights on travel between specific points.

Seems an ideal use for the new Location Intelligence platforms like CARTO which can extract the value of this location data. Even more so by joining this Uber Data with other data sources e.g. parking data.

I earlier wrote of the partnership between Parkopedia & Auto Manufacturers to extract value from car navigation systems. Initiatices like this will make it easier for City and Mumicipal Governments to extract the optimal value from data.
