Repository to support the 'GIS for Transport Applications' (GIS4TA) workshop
The aim of GIS4TA is to provide a forum for learning, discussion and dissemination for people using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for transport planning and related applications.
The main purpose of this repository is to link together resources that were used for the workshop, to ensure that the materials will be of use to others. Hopefully this set of links and resources will continue to grow. Feel free to fork, clone, copy and re-use any of the content.
But please credit the source.
A write-up of the event can be found on my personal website:
