4) to assess livability or the quality of urban spaces where objective metrics from sensors and machines are not accurate. These activities produce large volumes of structured and unstructured data that can be analyzed to obtain insights into preferences, behaviors and so on. There has been an explosive growth in the wealth of data proactively generated through different sensing systems. Depending on the level of decision-making needed on the part of users generating information, proactive sensing modes can be disaggregated into participatory (active) and opportunistic (passive) sensing modes.

Inferring knowledge from such data involves digitization, exploratory media analysis, text and cultural landscape mapping, 3-D mapping, electronic literary analysis, and advanced visualization techniques. With online publishing and virtual archives, content creators and users have the potential to interact with source materials to create new findings, while also facilitating civic engagement, community building and information sharing. Recent focus has been on humanities to foster civic engagement; for example, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2013), while making a case for federal funding for the public humanities, emphasized the need to encourage “civic vigor” and to prepare citizens to be “voters, jurors, and consumers”.

One particular development with administrative data is its increasing availability through “Open Data” initiatives. These initiatives have largely been driven by open government strategies, generally thought of as reflecting transparent government, collaborative government, and innovative government, with some degree of confusion and ideological tensions about what these terms mean in practice (Shkabatur 2013; Pyrozhenko 2011). Open data initiatives are based on the idea that governmental data should be accessible for everyone to use and to republish without copyright or other restrictions in order to create a knowledgeable, engaged, creative citizenry, while also bringing about accountability and transparency.
