Developing an Interactive Landscape for Mobility Resources: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


As the world continues to be increasingly driven by data, the ways researchers and professionals sort and collect this data is critical. In the world of mobility data, new levels of data from public transportation systems, location services, and other means are being lost due to how little organization exists. Much of the data is proprietary, and there are few if any de jure or even de facto standards connecting data. There is also little knowledge about the gaps that exist in the data. In this project, we created an interactive landscape where mobility resources are categorized and organized in an easy to use, living document. We made this landscape with open-source code from the CNCF Cloud Native Landscape and repurposed it to the mobility data's needs. Additionally, unlike previous sources that organize mobility data, this document can be updated through GitHub by those in the field to keep its sources relevant. Following the creation of a beta version of the landscape, we conducted several interviews with industry researchers and professionals to ensure the landscape would be useful. The result is an online hub where mobility researchers and resource creators can easily access research and collaborate.
