About the Urban Big Data Centre

The Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC) is a research resource promoting the use of innovative methods and complex urban data to address global city challenges.

Funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council , the UBDC is a unique facility that brings together the expertise of urban social scientists, data scientists and statisticians from the University of Glasgow and six partner universities. We support policy makers, businesses, third sector organisations and everyday citizens to harness the potential of big data to develop solutions for environmentally sustainable, economically resilient and socially just cities.

The UBDC has been established in order to support a wide range of users conducting research on urban data and urban issues. The UBDC Data Portal is part of our larger data service offering, which allows researchers to work on Œbig data¹ (large volumes, mixed origins) and on data which is potentially sensitive, containing personal information about individuals ­ or indeed both at the same time. If you are interested in working with additional data, partnering with us, or have any questions, please contact us using the following details:
