Berlin Marathon 2016 – how fast your city runs by Julius Troeger, Andre Paetzold
With the interactive map, users can follow the Berlin Marathon in time lapse for the first time, and compare the runners. The application shows how fast all 35,827 runners that finished the 2016 marathon ran through the city. Each individual runner is animated as a point on the map, using the real running times. The animated field of runners can also be filtered according to sex and place of residency. In addition, the user can enter their personal best time and track their position on the map, alongside the average for the field. The map is supplemented by an aggregated ranking for runners from a particular Berlin district, German state, or country.
