A short post about a few great visualizations of how we move in cities*:
Giorgio Uboldi writes about a project where the DensityDesign Lab analyzed and visualized data collected of a car sharing service in Milan over seven days.
* There are many other projects dedicated to capture human mobility patterns in our cities using a wide variety of data sources and visualization techniques. It would be barely impossible to cover all of them. Here is a list with some of the projects I have crossed with:
- Visualizing the Speed and Direction of Twitter Users
- Sensing the City: Mapping London’s Population Flows
- Metropolitain: Exploring the Paris Metro in 3D
- Your Rush-Hour Commute as an Animated Cartoon
- Isochronic Singapore: A Dynamic City Transportation Map
- What Public Transit Data Teaches Us About How People Use a City
- How fast are Boston's buses? Journey speeds visualised in near real time
- Identifying Communities in Traffic Flow
- NYC Taxi Trips Data from 2013
- Any other suggestion ... ?
