WASHINGTON, D.C. — CityLab reported on a German university student who developed a new tool for visualizing public transit in a more system-oriented way.
Transit Visualization Client, or TRAVIC, takes public data from 249 transportation networks, across five continents, and puts them onto one, animated map. Some data point movements correspond to schedules, not real-time realities, making it a quasi-utopia of uninterrupted transit.
Aside from offering a broad look at the movements of global transit networks, TRAVIC offers a unique opportunity to analyze how these systems work. For the full story and to see examples of maps, click here.
