Detail of Greater London, which features the UK’s most dense and complex multimodal networks. Individual vehicles are more obvious in this animation due to the smaller size of the area as compared to the previous one. It is interesting to visualise the bus network transition from night to day, the steady ‘pulse’ of the tube network throughout its service and the Stansted-Heathrow-Gatwick connection defined by the coach network.
This movie has been generated using OpenGL. Vehicle trajectories in the animation use straight lines between stops. Waiting time in a public transport stop is defined in the dataset and so is also taken into account in the animation. Air travel data in the dataset is only available for Scotland.
The Simulacra team and particularly Duncan Smith have given very valuable advice to improve all visualisations.
