Animated Bicycle Rentals
Oh man, this is just beautiful and mesmerizing, and, relatively valuable. What is it? It’s data in visual form, specifically bike trips recorded from the Barclay’s bike rental system in Central London over an entire year. The information was compiled and converted into an animation that, after a few small adjustments made for travel time, patterns began to emerge so the viewer could tell which stations are being used the most and where riders are traveling. Overall though, it’s just beautiful to watch. Look closely and you can see one of the paths of travel stop abruptly, that’s me getting my rental stolen on vacation (not really).
