The DigitalTransport4Africa (DT4A) Webinar Series is a monthly webinar organized by WRI Africa and Global with DT4A consortium partners. The goal of the series is to facilitate knowledge exchange around public transport and data initiatives taking place in African cities and beyond, especially those undertaken by the consortium partners.
The webinar offers an exclusive sneak peek into ITDP’s upcoming Atlas of City Transport, a new global data dashboard for sustainable transportation, set to launch in early 2024. The Atlas is designed to provide neighborhood-level metrics for walking, bicycling, public transport, and urban form for over 1,000 urban areas worldwide. This platform facilitates the comparison of indicators among cities, agglomerations, or districts, over different timeframes around the world. The platform also offers open-source geospatial data that can be downloaded. This webinar will demonstrate the functionality of the Atlas, discuss data sources, and explore new indicators. Additionally, this event provides an opportunity to express interest in gaining access to the invite-only Beta version of the website, which is scheduled for deployment in mid-September.
