OsloViz

Inspired by the Copenhagen bike sharing design competition, this project focused on visualizing how bike systems in other cities were used. This project focuses on the lesser known but quite well functioning Oslo Bysykkel system in Oslo, Norway.

Much effort was devoted to capturing and processing the data from the Bysykkel service. Information about how many bikes were available at each station was collected every 5 minutes over a period of 4 days. This level of detail allows a clear picture into the changing system throughout the day and night.

The location of the stations are shown in relative position, and the shape of the city subtly emerges. For a clearer picture, an optional underlay of the city is available. A time-line allows for easy
navigation through the 4 days of data, and a playback mode automatically walks you through the time.
