Details

Uber Movement has recently released a new dataset, segment-level speeds, which has wide applicability towards urban and transportation planning. Combined with the capabilities of Kepler.gl and other datasets, the possibilities for data-driven planning are enormous. Join us for a hands-on workshop where we explore these opportunities as part of the Visualization team’s ongoing Visualization Nights series!

Please bring your laptop!

Introduction
The Uber Visualization team will give a quick introduction to the new Uber Movement Street Speeds product and a brief overview of Kepler.gl.

Tutorial #1
We will start with a basic tutorial where we walk through how to download the Street Speeds dataset and visualize it in Kepler.gl. We will pick two different time periods of Uber Movement speeds data and explore spatial-temporal insights.

Tutorial #2
Next, we will dive into a more advanced tutorial where we will combine data sources for more complex insights. We will visualize the layers of additional data sources (for example, datasets regarding transit, safety, and economic development, among others.) and explore more complex urban challenges.

DIY
At the end of the workshop, you will have an opportunity to create your own story with a focus on transit datasets. We will also show you how to export and share your beautiful insights with the world!

Optional showcase of work + Q&A
