Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh and home to millions, but the megacity doesn’t have a bus map. Urban Launchblog describes a groundbreaking initiative which will use crowd-sourcing to gather information for an online and offline Bus Map of Dhaka. They have coined the term Flocksourcing (Flocks + Mobiles) which will help rapid generation of urban data.
