Authors: Marta Severo, Timothee Giraud and Hugues Pecout

This communication will present the results of a project (called “Big data”) carried out in the context of the European programme ESPON. In this project, we test the interest of using Web 2.0 data for studying issues related to territorial development and cohesion. We focus on the possible uses of large sets of Twitter data for studying European cities. These data are expected to improve the study of the impact of the brand of a city at international and at local level.
