Animation: How people move around Los Angeles


UC Berkeley planning Ph.D. student Fletcher Foti animated the data from household travel surveys showing how people move throughout the day. Foti's results color-code whether people drive, walk, take transit, ride a bike or stay home. You can follow the movements of a sampling of Los Angeles (or New York or San Francisco) residents hour by hour, isolated by income. Scroll out and see all of metropolitan Southern California. Hat tip to Atlantic Cities.
