Background

As someone who is a regular user of ride sharing services, I thought it would be interesting to dive into my own ride sharing behaviour and see if I could use python to plot my travel history on a folium map.

Let's get started!


Objective

This document will outline the following:

  1. How to extract your ride sharing data history.
  2. How to convert raw address data into latitude and longitudes
  3. How to plot the starting and ending trip points on a folium map
  4. How to plot routes between your starting and ending points on a folium map.
  5. How to uncover key statistics about your trip history

By the end of the document, you'll be able to have a cool data visualization about your own ride sharing usage history, which should look something like:
