WSJ: Tapping 'Big Data' to Fill Potholes

On June 12, 2012, the Wall Street Journal published an interesting piece on using 'Big Data' to solve traffic problems.  It explores using data from mobile devices and vehicles so that potholes and trafficjams will practially report themselves.  See the original post at the WSJ.

While big data solutions seem useful in large cities, it raises questions about the applicability to smaller metro regions and for solving large scale problems.  Robert Goodspeed (formerly of ArborUpdate) explores some of these issues in a post on Planetizen.
