Data from 'human sensors' is increasingly easy to collect. Yet how may systems be designed that put it to use? This chapter discusses this question in three steps. First, we describe how the increasing ubiquity of digital systems is facilitating the creation of streams of human data. We characterise these data sources according to their purpose, obtrusiveness, structure, and hierarchy.
