codecentric mittendrin

Meetups, Stammtische, Hackathons, User Groups: Die codecentric ist weit mehr als die Summe ihrer Mitarbeiter und Projekte.

Hinter jeder erfolgreichen Software steht eine starke Community

Wissensvermittlung, Nachwuchsförderung und der fachliche Austausch auf Augenhöhe sind für uns Herzensangelegenheiten. Wir sind der Meinung: Geteilte Innovationsfreude ist doppelte Innovationsfreude.

Deshalb mischen sich codecentric-Mitarbeiter und -Mitarbeiterinnen gerne unter die Community – ob als Gastgeber, Redner oder Organisatoren diverser Veranstaltungen. Treffen Sie uns auf einem der folgenden Events!

Using R to help plan the future of transport

In our next MünsteR Meetup, Mark Padgham will provide an overview of several inter-related R packages for analysing urban dynamics.

The primary motivation for developing these packages has been their use in Active Transport Futures – a group of researchers and coders striving to aid cities to better plan for futures in which active travel, particularly walking and cycling, plays an increasingly prominent role (lots of open source code at We will take a close look at the packages „osmdata“ and „dodgr“, the first of which imports Open Street Map (OSM) data directly into R, while the second is a very powerful, large-scale routing engine. These two packages enable accurate estimates of densities of different kinds of transport along all individual street segments of a city. The development of these packages has been partly motivated by their use in the Urban Health Agenda of the World Health Organization. We will also demonstrate a few other tools currently being developed for this work, including a brand new package to very easily set up a web server for large amounts of spatial data.
