Bengaluru transport datajam (announcement)

We are back again with another community event in the city. All details are below.


We are organising a datajam!

29th June, 2019 | 10 am to 5 pm

What will we be doing?

The idea of the DataJam is to explore, analyze and understand the state of transportation and commuting in Bangalore using open data. For instance, some of the questions we may analyze would include: “Which areas of the city are well serviced by buses & metro? What does Uber usage look like at different times of the day?”
If you enjoy engaging with data and trying to make sense of it, come and join us. We will divide people in groups. Each group will have people from different backgrounds who will work together.
We will be publishing the data visualisations generated out of this event on Citizen Matters, Bengaluru’s top local news website.
