SubMap x UrbanCyclr visualization launched

After meeting UrbanCyclr developers at last year's Beyond Data workshop at Kitchen Budapest, we decided to collaborate on visualizing urban biking patterns in Budapest. Urban biking in my home city is becoming more and more popular every year and  I am happy to be part of this growing community. [vimeo w=500&h=281]

Kitchen Budapest and UrbanCyclr teamed up to untangle the invisible pattern of bike traffic in Budapest. 100.000 kilometers of biking routes collected from individual bikers are overlaid on the city map. All distortions of the map reflect higher biking activity in the respective area of the city. 24h map animation reveals the daily biking patterns of a growing community of urban bikers in Budpest.

Urbancyclr application allows bikers to track their biking routes in the city. The individual routes are added to an aggregated map of the bikers' community. 100.000 kilometers of biking routes have been collected from individual bikers since the launch of the app in 2011.

Submap is a unique tool to visualize geographic and time-based data on distorted maps. It has a huge potential in coping with data from a physically distributed network of independent sensors.
