A Summer Day In Amsterdam's Canals by Massachusetts Institute of Technology
This project visualizes the boat traffic in Amsterdam's canals, with actual data. It explores the different types of vessels in the water and their speeds, and watch the traffic ebb and flow as the day progresses —a few key events and areas where clear patterns emerge are highlighted.
This visualization is part of the ongoing project Roboat, a collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute for Technology and AMS —the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions— that seeks to design and test the world's first fleet of autonomous boats in the city of Amsterdam
