Web Flow Map of bicycle sharing data

This map was created in the course Geovisualization and Advanced Cartography in the first semester of CDE.

This project deals with the visualisation of bike sharing data from BLUEbikes in Boston, Massachussets. BLUEbikes provides rich system data for free use on their website.

The flow of BLUEbikes users renting a bike at one station and dropping it of at a destination station is visualised. For this, the JavaScript library Leaflet was used to create an interactive flow map for the web.

The main functionalities of the resulting map were created by using functions and properties of a plugin called Leaflet.Canvas-Flowmap-Layer.

You can try the interactive map here.
