Detailed Animation of Travel Surveys

Despite the amazing potential of new technologies (eg social mediamobile phones) to inform us about spatial patterns in urban mobility, traditional Household Travel Surveys are still a key source of data with preciously detailed information on socio-economic and demographic characteristics.

Recently, Fletcher Foti (Ph.D. student at Berkeley) created a striking detailed animation daily travel patterns using the most recent surveys from the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York. You may check the animation here and have more information at Emily Badger's post.
