Announcing the Urban Data Hub at Cornell AAP

April 3, 2023

Thanks to the generous support from the Center for Cities, we are happy to annouce the creation of new Urban Data Hub initiative at the College of Architecture, Art, and Planning! This is initiative is led by Wenfei Xu, director of the Urban Data Research Lab, Timur Dogan, director of the Environmental Systems Lab, and Jesse LeCavalier, director of the Master of Science, Advanced Urban Design Program at Cornell.

The Cornell AAP Urban Data Hub is a cross-disciplinary initiative aimed to catalyze longer-term urban big data infrastructure within AAP to accelerate our research, teaching, and engagement with contemporary and critical discourse in design and planning practice. Simultaneously, the Urban Data Hub will support the heretofore understudied and under-validated application of urban big data - particularly human mobility data described by cell phone locations - toward planning and design decisions in practice.
