Changes in Annual Rail Usage

CartoDB Ambassador

I created this interactive visualisation to show how rail usage in the UK has evolved over nearly two decades for the Campaign for Better Transport using the amazing mapping platform Carto.

The map, covering 18 years of journeys across the UK was a huge hit.  It was featured by the BBC and on the front page of the Scotsman.  In total, it the visualisation was viewed over 107,000 times.

The fact that the map shows 45,000 data points in a way that can be quickly understood is astonishing.  

The map allows the viewer to assimilate large amounts of data to instantly grasp the picture nationally, and zoom in on the area in which they live and work.

As a result of this piece of work, Carto asked me to be an ambassador.
