The Government of India is promoting online and digital modes of payments for goods and services. For any person to have access to these facilities it is essential that they have access to banks close to where they live. We at the UXO decided that it would be fun to visualize all the banks on a map of India. This is the second of a set of blog posts in which we shall discuss our results.
We have compiled the dates of establishment of all bank branches in India. The first video animation shows the growth of banks in Mumbai.
We also overlaid the bank data on top of the data of our existing data we had generated about the built up area of Mumbai in 3 time periods (Pre 1990, 1990-2000 and built up between 2000-2010)
