The wheels on the bus: Auckland moving

This is an animated map of Auckland’s public transport system, created by Chris McDowall who has a Sciblog called “>seeing(data)”. It depicts a typical Monday beginning at 3:00am right up to midnight. The movement is all based on Google Transit Feed data published by Auckland Transport.

McDowall has more to say about the video what it represents on his site, so check the post for this map.

If we could visualise all data in an easy-to-grasp way like this, we’d all be a lot better off, I think.

A Tip o' the Hat to fellow American Expat in NZ, Dawn (who's also a friend, as in, IRL), for sending me the link.
