TIMEMAPS

An interesting map made by Dutch design school graduate Vincent Meertens. A map of the Netherlands based on how long it takes to get from one place to another by train. The map will change shape and size depending on where you are travelling from, and also on the time of day, due to the number of available trains.

The web app didn’t seem that easy to use, not entirely due to my not knowing any Dutch, but it’s a nice idea. When travelling somewhere physical distances can seem less important than the time it will take to get there.
