Mining Social and Transportation Data for Predicting Taxi Pick-up Hotspots
Today people use online social networks (OSN) to expless their views, experiance, opinion etc. Recently different government officials, city authority
have started using OSN platform for circulating news for convenience of the city people. They regularly post about different city events which can
disturb traffic. Again during such city events the traffic pattern changes locally which alters the regular driving pattern of the
public transportation vehicles like yellow taxi. This results in the change of the popular taxi pick up locations or hotspots.
So our objective is to analyse these traffic related social media content to infer meaningful traffic insight and predict these taxi
pickup hotspots for an upcoming city event. This will help both the passengers and the drivers.
