Mapping travel-to-work flows

WithOliver O’Brien, James Cheshire

A fine-grained origin-destination dataset, showing counts of travel-to-work flows split by mode of transport, was incorporated into an online scrollable/zoomable map, which allowed for intuitive navigation of the data and easy identification of distinct flow patterns. The technique demonstrates that even with a relatively simple cartographical treatment of the data, insights can be quickly gained.
