Mapping the matatus of Nairobi

Cities: matatu 2, routesAn interesting project… Download maps generated by the ‘digital matatu’ team – a joint venture between Columbia and Nairobi University, Groupshot and MIT – and published in The Guardian article, Cities in motion: how we mapped the matatus of Nairobi (February 19, 2014).

Matatus are the informal minibus transport system that keeps Nairobi running, similarly to Luanda’s candongueiros.
