Animated History of Berlin's Transit System
The History of Berlin's Transit System uses the Google Maps API with the Simile Timeline to create an animated map showing the development of Berlin's public transit over time.
When you press the play button the map animates through the time-line adding lines to the map showing the development of Berlin's s-bahn, u-bahn and strassenbahn. Users can select individual transit systems, so, for example, if you are only interested in the development of the s-bahn you can deselect the other transit systems and just view an animation of the growth of the s-bahn on the map.
