At the start of the week Alexander Chen treated us to a visualisation of the New York subway, using a little bit of flash and HTML5:
It really shows how beautifully data can be visualised.
This animation shows the real-time behaviour of hire bikes in London on October 4th 2010, the day of a major tube strike, and the busiest day for the scheme to date.
Departure times and journey durations are real; routing is calculated from OSM data; average speed from journey duration and route length.
Data collation and routing by Ollie O’Brien (CASA-UCL); Visualization created by Martin Austwick (ENFOLDing project/CASA-UCL) using Processing.
