Travel Patterns / Revealed

This is part the group work of Gianfranco Gliozzo, Gareth Simons, Katerina Skroumpelou and Stelios Tsaparas, as part of a group visualization project at UCL. We wrote the code in Processing with data from TfL.

The code will soon be uploaded on GitHub.

You can see the rest of the work on our group’s blog,ActivityBeyondBarriers.

The source code can be found here.

The length of the vertical lines of the graph represents the load of the tube at each time step. Again, the white lines represent NDOCU and the red DFPH. As the week progresses, we clearly see that the white lines have notable peaks during the morning and afternoon rush hours, whereas the red lines have no peaks…
