A Perceptive Insight into Cities Patterns by Visualizing Urban Economies

Abstract: 

Urban economic activities are an essential facet in defining city identity. Traditional approaches rely very often on the most theoretical and quantitative features of the studies, excluding de-facto a direct association between those findings and the tangible subject of the analysis. To fill the gap, the Big Data era and information visualization methodologies could help analysts, stakeholders and general audience to gain a new insight on the field. In this paper, we want to provide some food for thought about new opportunities arising in visual urban economies as well as present some visual results on possible scenarios.
