Public transport and school location impacts on educational inequalities in Sao Paulo

In 2016, I had the opportunity to attend a session at the AAG conference where Ana Moreno-Monroy presented a very interesting paper analyzing inequalities in school accessibility by public transport  in Sao Paulo. The paper is coming out in the Journal of Transport Geography and it’s coauthored by Robin Lovelace and Fred Ramos, such a great team. I should also note that a big chunk of the data analysis was conducted in R using stplanr, a library for transport planning developed by Robin and Richard Ellison and which is a major contribution to the field.

Tutti mi chiamano "uomo del gis" ... i software così detti GIS (Geographic information system) hanno accompagnato il mio percorso di studi universitario, fin dalle prime elaborazioni, quando mi fecero calcolare la lunghezza di una pista ciclabile e l'area di un bosco ... per un po' di mesi, mi chiedevo perché non mi facevano usare il mio amato AutoCad, visto che lo usavo già da 3-4 anni ... ma poi ho capito la differenza ... e tutto cambiò!
