This tutorial will help you get started with Hadoop and HDP.

Traffic Congestion is a problem for commuters. A team of city planners work together to create a location for a new highway based on traffic patterns. Live data originally poses a problem for analyzing traffic data because historical and aggregated traffic counts were used. They selected NiFi for real-time data integration because it leverages the ability to ingest, filter and store data-in-motion. Observe how their team used NiFi to obtain a deeper understanding of traffic patterns and decide on a location for the new highway.
