The age of the quantified self is upon us with tracking of sleep, daily motion & eating habit common place across broad demographic cross-section of our communities. The captured data is then fed into aggregation apps to build up an overview of the world. This data could be of immense importance to planners & researchers to better understand how the citizens interact with landscapes, ecosystems & their local services. At present local services who would like to obtain this data are being offered it at a premium by the companies who are capturing it passively through our IoT devices. A scheme in Milton Keynes uses embedded sensors in recycling bins across to inform the Council when they are ready for collection.
