The data visualization of this paper was done for Alternative Policy Solutions, a public policy research project at The American University in Cairo. This policy paper suggests solutions for utilizing urban mobility within the New Desert Communities (NDCs) to improve the living conditions of existing residents and attract more people to currently vacant housing, rather than simply continuing to focus on expansion. Specifically, using new transit data, this paper develops a citizen-centric model of urban accessibility, that measures mobility within NDCs and to other parts of the Greater Cairo Region. Our team enjoyed turning intensive, complex data which compare between different geographical areas into compelling visuals.
