Ottawa Mass Transit Routes 1929-2015

Project

This project is a series of maps of mass transit routes within the city of Ottawa 1929-2015. The maps are based on GIS files created and hosted at Carleton University's MacOdrum Library. Some historical topographical maps have been added to the earlier maps to provide context for the mass transit network as it existed at the time. To enable further analysis of mass transit routes additional data has been added. The 1961 and 1971 Canadian Censuses have data of automobile ownership and that data is displayed on maps from 1962-1974.

This project was created for Dr. John Walsh's Carleton University class HIST 4303A: Maps and Mapping in Canadian History.

Technology

The programs to analyse the data and generate the maps are available on github.
