To analyze the suburbs in Bishkek, we requested a list of all residential areas
included in the city from BishkekGlavArhitektura. We then mapped them using data from 2GIS, Google Maps, and Open Street Maps (OSM).
To see the difference in development around Bishkek from 2000 to 2020, we analyzed data from the Global Land Analysis & Discovery
(GLAD) Laboratory of the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, which monitors changes in land use worldwide.
To analyze the accessibility of public transport, we drew the routes of public transport from the municipal service "Moi Gorod"
(My city). We then downloaded from OSM all public transport stops, added missing ones using data from Google Maps and 2GIS — all filtered by proximity to residential areas.
Using the Carto service, we calculated a 500-meter pedestrian accessibility taking into account the road network — that is, we built isochrones. We then visualized the results. We also calculated the area of pedestrian service for stops near or inside each suburb. These calculations were based on city building codes/norms
for urban planning in Kyrgyzstan.
