Mobile Money Access

We mapped each and every building in Kampala. There are 399,388 of them. We made a lovely atlas (click here). We also mapped each and every Mobile Money agent in Kampala (thanks to FSD Uganda for the data). There are 10,199 of them. We then measured the distance from each building to the nearest agent. Red is closer, green is further. You can see the result below. Click here for the full screen immersive experience.

If you are curious, this is the building in the city that is further than any other from a mobile money agent.  


We could do a lot more with this data, link it to the recent census data for more granular demographics, link it to Kampala capital city authority land use plans to understand violations of regulations or understand if slums expanded or contracted in recent years (spoiler alert: we're assuming the former).
