There are nearly 10,000 miles of railway lines and 250,000 miles of roads in the UK, which if laid out, would get you to the moon (although not back!). We likely use these things every day – but probably rarely think about them. Who else uses them? When? Why?
And how can communities be involved in questions about how we get from A to B?
We had an evening of talks on 25 May, 6.30pm to 8.15pm (BST) exploring the different ways that data can be used to help us better understand the ways we travel.
- Kris Vanherle, Telraam
- Shan Wilkinson, Bolton Council
- John Paddington, Transport for West Midlands
- Dustin Carlino, AB Streets Seattle
- Robin Lovelace, University of Leeds
It was a fantastic evening with loads of practical stuff to takeaway. Watch it here:
… P.S. save the date for our next Open:Data:Night on 29 June at 6.30pm (last Tuesday of the month, as ever) where we’ll be mapping our communities.
