How we used Google Maps to review the transport accessibility of cultural institutions
What does it mean that an institution is easily accessible to participants? The problem of accessibility is certainly not limited to transportation networks and means of transport. Using the example of one educational institution, we show how the Google Distance Matrix API can be used to do carry out transport accessibility studies.

Cultural data analysis is consistent with the positive smart city vision
Working under guidance from data science expert Piotr Migdał as part of our Shared Cities project, the workgroups are developing a range of tools for the analysis and visualisation of social media data. Network analysis conducted with these tools allows us to study the declared participation in Katowice’s cultural activities and present it in different forms.
