Reel-Time Traffic

Wegbeeld is a map of traffic conditions on the Netherlands' motorway network. The map allows you to replay the last three hours of traffic on the whole network. So you might say that this map includes reel-time as well as real-time traffic conditions.

The map includes an estimation on the current CO2 emissions being generated by all the cars on the Netherlands' motorways. The estimation is calculated based on the amount of traffic and the average speed of all the cars on the road.

The use of an animated road layer works really well in highlighting the important data on the map.   The map itself is derived from PDOK, the Dutch governments digital maps and geodata department.
