Beyond Mapping Workshop
“Transit Data” will not change our transport experience until we learn how to visualize it and tell the story of urban mobility in Cairo.
TfC’s recently collected data was used to lead a data visualization workshop in Cairo in the American University in Cairo’s Tahrir campus in late August, 2018. During the 3-day workshop, the teams learned about data visualization techniques, the context of the data, and its sociological implications and biases.
Transit Map Workshop
Desert City Mappers and Transport for Cairo (TfC) organized a collaborative mapping exercise at MSA University, Cairo, titled “Transit Map Design”. The 3-day workshop included Students from Cairo’s Public and Private Universities, and involved visualizing experimental real-life data released by TfC.
