Visualizing the Paris Subway Network
This project builds a small-multiple visualization of the Paris subway network.
You can read more about this project here.
Here is a low-res version of the output. Each point is a subway station. Each circle is a subway line (color is official line color and circle size is proportional to line number)
You should download the code and run it yourself to get a higher image resolution or a .pdf output.
Running the code
Requires Python > 3.3.
$ git clone https://github.com/BenjaminHabert/Paris_Subway_Dataviz.git $ cd Paris_Subway_Dataviz $ make install $ make pipeline
- get the list of stations and lines from wikipedia
- for each line: get the color of the line by looking at the proper div in it's own wikipedia page
- create image from the collected dataset
Intermediate (.csv files) and final (.png and .pdf images) are stored in data/ and are not committed to the repository.
