Analysing transport routing in the UK using travel-time matrices with Rafael Verduzco.
In this guide, Rafael Verduzco from the Urban Big Data Centre shows you how to analyse transport routing in the UK using travel-time matrices.
Rafa combines various data sources to calculate routes from two points for multiple modes of transport, including driving, cycling, walking and using public transport. He also explains how travel time matrices can be used to look at the accessibility of amenities, for example, travel times to local hospitals in the greater Glasgow area.
Understanding and analysing travel between and within areas using big data is part of UBDC's work on transport. Combining this with other data such as UBDC's CCTV data showing traffic and transport at key locations can help our understanding of transport usage and the needs of the urban environment.
* Source travel data for the UK including public transport timetables
* Customise routing based on factors including mode of transport and itinerary preferences
* Visualise routes and transport accessibility

How to install and run customised YOLOv4 Object Detection Model using GPU with Maralbek Zeinullin
In this guide, Data Analyst Maralbek Zeinullin shows you how to install and run customised YOLOv4 Object Detection Model using GPU.
Being able to detect objects in CCTV footage enables us to study the flow of people and vehicles at a location without multiple picture passes.
Install drivers and utilise GPU.
Run the customised model to identify objects such as pedestrians, vehicles and cyclists in footage.
