This is the presentation I gave at the Velo-City 2013 conference last week – I’m uploading it here as quite a few people have asked for it. The PDF contains my whole talk, except for some graphics from a couple of forthcoming papers which haven’t been published yet, and a conceptual image from a paper that we haven’t even started doing the research for yet!
The paper includes an introduction to EUNOIA, which is my main research project. Bikesharing data will form a small but useful part of this two-year EU transport mobility modelling project.
Here is the PDF of the presentation.
At time of presenting last week I was monitoring 85 cities live, since then I’ve added quite a few more (and dropped a couple) so I am now at 98 cities!
The new cities are:
- France: Chalon
- France: Grenoble
- France: Strasbourg (operates as return-to-origin)
- Spain: Castellon
- Spain: Leon
- Norway: Oslo
- Norway: Drammen
- Greece: Didymoteicho
- Greece: Karditsa
- Cyprus: Nicosia
- USA: Aspen
- UK: Oxford
- China: Aksu
Castellon and Leon were particular headaches, as they don’t have an official live map with location data – so I had to use a combination of third-party location data and manual georeferencing the newer locations! Oxford is also the first system where there are not a fixed number of docks. Implementing this on my map was a bit of a kludge. I’ve assumed that there are always more docks than bikes there, with a minimum 10 docks at each docking station.
Fixed cities are:
I’ve also switched the Mexico City feed to using the citybik.es service.
Dropped cities include Pavia (too small) and Stockholm East (too small). Nantong and Guadalajara have also been put on hold as their feeds have frozen for the last few days.
Cities I’m hoping to add very shortly are:
- Portugal: Torres Vedras (launches 22 June)
- France: Clermont-Ferrand (launches 27 June)
- USA: Chicago (launches 28 June)
So Chicago’s DivvyBikes could well be the 100th system I’m tracking – and my presentation title will be valid!
You can see all the cities I’m tracking on the global view of my Bike Sharing Map – I also took the opportunity at the conference to launch this new, consolidated view.
