    Geography as a discipline is concerned with developing a greater understanding of processes that take place across the planet. While many geographers agree that big data presents opportunities to glean insights into our social and spatial world, and the processes that take place within it, many are also cautious about how it used and the impact it may have on how these worlds are analysed and understood. Given that often big data are either explicitly or implicitly spatially or temporally referenced, this makes it particularly interesting for geographers. Geography, then, becomes part of the big data phenomenon.
