Fast and Fabulous Custom Maps using Mapbox in Tableau
So the last time I wanted a custom map, I ended up building my own WMS and spending months and $’s to get the map I wanted. Then one day recently, I had a cocktail with Allan Walker (that insane mapping Zen dude) who pointed out that if you just opened up a .tms file in notepad, there just wasn’t all that much to it but a wee bit of xml.
What follows is another DataBlick tutorial on making custom maps in Mapbox.
Building a Visualization of Transit System Data Using GTFS
The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) defines a common format for public transportation schedules and associated geographic information. GTFS “feeds” allow public transit agencies to publish their transit data and developers to write applications that consume that data in an interoperable way.
This tutorial will show you how to use Tableau to build a map of transit data and incorporate it in a BI dashboard for analysis.What is the average route duration, fare, number of stops?How many are wheelchair accessible? Don’t care about BART?Check out the list of all the agencies that use this format at http://www.gtfs-data-exchange.com/agencies .
