To kick off this blog…
I recently attended a Data Hack Day at the London Transport Museum, run by onedotzero and Protein. A day spent at the London Transport Museum was a good enough reason to get me there, playing with data was an added bonus.
Some really interesting work was done with the data – a few of them can be seen in the Protein link above. I spent part of the day playing with a csv file containing a list of stops on every bus route in London. There wasn’t that much time but it turned out to be relatively simple to create in Processing a map of London based solely on the bus routes. It spends about 20 minutes drawing the routes, stop by stop, and when done you get this:
The colours don’t refer to anything in particular, they just change as the creation of the map goes on to make it look more interesting. When I’ve managed to create a suitable video (one that isn’t 20 minutes long and huge), I’ll put that up here.
