Visualizing public transport using Python

I will demonstrate the power of the datashader library to make interactive visualizations of large datasets with little effort through an example of public transport data. I will also briefly touch upon the topics of open data, GTFS public transport schedules and using undocumented APIs. The presented approach can easily be used to plot a wide range of large-ish geo-datasets, such as traffic data, location history, industrial activity, demographics or voting patterns.
