Headways Transit Analysis Software
My project is a web application that allows users to analyze transit data, extracting useful information and displaying it in visually pleasing ways. Data processing is a central part of the app, including the use of algorithms and statistics. The presentation of the data is equally important to producing the data, so we will make use of libraries like D3 and some attention to detail.
The intended users of this application are, at first, advocates and hobbyists of transit who can utilize the information to direct their advocacy work. Eventually, I envision the application being used by transit agencies or consultants as well, which is a potential business opportunity. I intend for the software to always be 100% free for any advocates or non-profits, though.
Project Duration (in Months)
3 months - or whatever you feel is right for you
Number of openings
The current iteration of the website (at a very early stage) is available here:
All the code is available under my GitHub. (see pinned repos)
I'm doing this project because I want to be able to better understand and analyze transit systems so that I can be a more powerful advocate, and I want to help other advocates do the same. What brings you to this project? What makes you interested in transit (if you are interested in transit)?
