About this Event

Visualizing real-time shared-mobility services through open source web mapping

The United States is currently in the midst of a micro-mobility revolution of sorts. Almost overnight, U.S. cities have been inundated with short-term rental scooters owned and operated by start-up companies promising a disruption to the urban transportation status-quo. In this workshop we will visualize the spatial and temporal distribution of scooter-share vehicles in a U.S. city in “real-time.” This will be achieved through the step-by-step development of an interactive web map using open source technologies such as Leaflet (and Mapbox). All backgrounds welcome.

Hardware/Software Requirements: A laptop with a web browser and plain text editor (e.g. notepad).

Instructor: Prof. Grant McKenzie, McGill University

Lunch will be served. Seats are limited.

This workshop is part of the 'Re-Imagining Data Visualization Lectureship Series 2019-2020' organized by S4 in conjunction with the Population Studies and Training Center (PSTC) and the Data Science Initiative (DSI), Department of Sociology and the School of Public Health (Department of Biostatistics & Center for Statistical Sciences) & is funded by the Herbert H. Goldberger Lectureship Fund.
