Commuting Times on Google Maps
The Centre for eCommerce and Communication at the University of Ballarat has created an animated Google Maps visualisation of 1,000 commuter journeys undertaken by university employees.
The UB Commute Visualisation shows how staff travel from their home to arrive at their destination campus by 9 am. As the visualisation animates the most used roads become thicker on the map to reflect the increased traffic.
The map sidebar includes a breakdown of some of the data, including the average distance travelled, the average commute time and a breakdown of the different distances travelled by employees of the university.
