    In The World: Mapping the logistics of megacities

    New open-source online maps generated by MIT students provide details of urban supply chains.

    As ever-larger “megacities” become home to more and more of the world’s people, the supply chains that bring essential supplies to these crowded populations will become increasingly complex.

    To help manage these logistics, researchers at MIT’s Megacities Logistics Lab have gathered data — collected by 11 MIT students paired with local students around the world — on representative neighborhoods in Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Kuala Lumpur and Madrid.

    Now that data has been made available online, at no cost, in an open-access pool of information that’s graphically represented on city maps.
