Hubway Data
Visualization Challenge

Best Data Exploration Tool

By Andy Woodruff

This interactive map displays trip volumes between stations filtered by ten or so factors of time, demographic, and weather data. By querying a database based on the chosen combination of filter settings, the map allows a user to ask very specific questions about the patterns of Hubway usage. ("Where do females ride after dark on cold days?" "Where do people who live north of Boston ride on weekends?" And so on.) Trips can be viewed for a single selected station or as an overview of the entire system.

As a companion to this I've also made a "Hubway Snapshots" series of maps and graphics that briefly examine some interesting facts about destinations, time, money, and demographics. A PDF of that is submitted here and can also be accessed from the interactive map.
