Delivering Edinburgh: Uncovering the Digital Geography of Platform Labour in the City

Researchers are exploring the hidden geography of the on-demand app-based food delivery platform, Deliveroo, by making visible the unseen and obscured cycling routes of food couriers in Edinburgh.

The project, led by University of Edinburgh researchers Karen Gregory (SPS) and Miguel Paredes Maldonado (ESALA), contributes to an understanding of how digital platforms, and the attendant digital labour these platforms require,  shape local urban and economic space.
