Abstract:The significance of comparing two seemingly dissimilar elements lies in its potential to uncover hidden similarities and identify areas for improvement. This research aims to explore the extent of similarity between two distinctly built cities, which, at a superficial level, appear to lack any common ground. By conducting a cartographic comparative analysis of their pervasive and ubiquitous transport networks, this study endeavours to elucidate the points of intersection, the ease of understanding the complexity of transport models with maps that helps visualise it dynamically and assess the potential for leveraging one city's navigation system to enhance the other. Through a comprehensive cartographic examination of the multimodal transport systems in Bengaluru and Amsterdam, this research aims to contribute to our understanding of urban mobility and highlight opportunities for optimisation. By delving into the complexities of these diverse cities, we seek to establish a framework for knowledge exchange and explore strategies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their transport infrastructures. The findings of this research have the potential to guide future urban planning initiatives and inform policymakers, enabling them to create more resilient, sustainable, and user-centric transport systems in cities worldwide.
