Triptrop NYC: Visualizing Travel Time
In an effort to figure out what half an hour from his apartment actually looked like, programmer and designer Jonathan Soma created triptrop NYC, a handy interactive map based on a combination of subway travel and walking. Users can easily view their approximate travel times between destinations or compare commutes from two separate locations – i.e. if you really want to see what the effect of moving to Sunnyside, Queens would be. In a world filled with increasing predictability, the only problem might be, that we’re quickly running out of excuses for being late anymore.
