Mapping the Timesheet of Urban Cycling by Muling Jiang, Liuhuaying Yang, Northeastern University
Over one year in Boston, 1,064,053 people cycled 16,548,483 mins in total. They burned 56,264,845 calories and saved 1,581,331,745 g CO2 emissions compared to if their journeys were by car. This visualization explores the time-based patterns and relevant benefits in terms of cycling. We hope to encourage people to take up cycling; and to promote both individual health and the sustainability of the urban environment.
