Hubway Data
Visualization Challenge

By Cathy Wu

The Hubway Time Machine provides its users with a way to visualize Hubway bike availability in the past, present and future. The main components are an interactive map depicting each of the Hubway stations and a dynamic histogram that shows the bike availability of selected stations. Users interact with and explore the Time Machine by selecting stations, scanning though past data, and checking present bike availability. Furthermore, through machine learning models based on historical availability, weather, and temperature data, we allow our users to peek into the future by providing them with availability predictions at stations of their choice.
