Using (Spring Data) Neo4j for the Hubway Data Challenge by Michael Hunger.
From the post:
Using Spring Data Neo4j it was incredibly easy to model and import the Hubway Challenge dataset into a Neo4j graph database, to make it available for advanced querying and visualization.
The Challenge and Data
Hubway is a bike sharing service which is currently expanding worldwide. In the Data challenge they offer the CSV-data of their 95 Boston stations and about half a million bike rides up until the end of September. The challenge is to provide answers to some posted questions and develop great visualizations (or UI’s) for the Hubway data set. The challenge is also supported by MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council).
Useful import tips for data into Neo4j and on modeling this particular dataset.
Not to mention the resulting database as well!
