DATA

The raw data (disaggregate StudentMove responses) are available at the link below. The link leads to the Data Management Group’s portal (the DMG).
A few short questions are asked when registering to download the data. These are asked solely so that we can improve StudentMove and gain a better understanding of where our community is coming from and what you/they/we are hoping to accomplish with this data and initiative more broadly.

VISUALIZATIONS

Jeff Allen, a student from UofT working under Professor Steven Farber, prepared a wonderful online visualization tool. With it, you can see the sums of shortest paths assigned to the network for all trips to campus recorded in the survey. In addition, you can choose to visualize only trips to a particular campus or by a particular mode of transportation (walk, bike, transit, car). Check it out!
