TubeViz – Tube Station Passenger Footfall
From Daniela Krug and Lars Malmqvist comes TubeViz – a nice visualisation of passenger entries to, and exits from, tube stations (not Overground or DLR) in London. As the animation runs, you can see the huge station usage in the centre of London during, and between, the rush hours, while the outer stations on the network generally remain comparatively quiet. TubeViz uses a stylised version of the official “Beck-style” London Underground map. so the central London stations don’t just disappear into a concentrated mass of circles, as would happen in a geographical map.
