This amazing visualization of how humans travel by bicycle around central London was created by Jo Wood, a professor of visual analytics at City University. It shows a year of rides among users of the bike-sharing program Barclays Cycle Hire, and eventually structure emerges from the apparent chaos of journeys.
The visualization is particularly useful, as it provides insight into the various components that can create an efficient and sustainable bicycle network or systems. From the location of docking stations, to the width of the routes towards high demand locations, to areas that simply require more bicycles and areas that need additional convincing that cycling is a better option.
