Destinations: A visual representation of accidents on the Mumbai Suburban Railway Network

(Work in progress) The Mumbai Suburban railway is an almost fully utilized transport network, and is a lifeline of Mumbai. However, with the large number of commuters there is also a dark side. It is reported that, on average there are 10 fatalities and 20 injuries daily (including Central, Western and Harbour lines). This project is an attempt to highlight the available data about the various incidents across lines in the hope of uncovering dimensions and insights through effective visualizations.
