The goals of this workshop is to introduce you to methods for how to extract content from big data sources such as Twitter and Google Street View to answer research questions particularly around the influence of social and built environments on health. There are many sources of organic big data – that are available but currently not leveraged for health research. We argue that using these data can help us implement cost-efficient and larger studies than previously possible. In this workshop, we cover the basis for how to get started using big data for research.
