Open bike sharing data: can they be used to monitor the city?

However some factors should be taken into account, such as the rebalancing, the use of the bikes to reach a station to continue the journey, or the difficulty of uphill trips. Could therefore such data be used to monitor the city? Could we build a model? What are the limitations? Join the conversation on Twitter using #poppy #bikesharing !
