EUROCHOCOLATE 2018: VISITORS FLOW MONITORED WITH SITUATION ROOM
From 19th to 28th October 2018 a lot of visitors visited Perugia for the most important national event on chocolate: Eurochocolate 2018, 25° edition. Eurochocolate is the festival dedicated to chocolate and cocoa that takes place every year in Perugia, Umbria. The event lasts ten days and runs along the main streets and squares of the historic city center. A large number of people generate a big amount of data, but these are very difficult to use. A particular technology allows to collect this large amount of data (Big Data) that can be processed, analyzed (Analysis) and made
understandable. In particular, it is possible to verify the geographical correspondence between information and places, in order to correlate the spatial interconnection between information on specific infrastructures (GIS systems).
The analysis of these data, mostly geo-referenced, is an important resource for urban planning during important events.
