Simulated world-city public transport networks

Collection: LUISA : Land-Use based Integrated Sustainability Assessment modelling platform 

Description

This dataset describes counterfactual public transport networks that were simulated for 36 world cities, and the aggregate data discussed in the paper in which these data are published. UNIT OF MEASURE: Meters of network length. RESOLUTION: 1:1000000. COMPLETENESS: 100%. POLICY CONTEXT: Regional and urban policies. METHODOLOGY: Network expansion modelling. DATA SOURCES: FUA boundaries and population sizes according to 1km GHSL population grids (release 2019). LEVEL OF AGGREGATION: cities defined on population density clusters. UNCERTAINTY AND LIMITATIONS: Data based on simulation exercise with the explicit aim of creating counterfactual networks.
