"Digital Geographies of Urban Inequality and Economic Attention"

As more and more aspects of contemporary society are tracked and quantified, the emerging cloud of so-called ‘big data’ is widely considered to represent a fundamental change in the way we interact with and understand the spaces of cities and economies.
