Walk, Cycle, Run: Glasgow in Motion

The Urban Big Data Centre works on the cycling, walking and running activities of people living in Glasgow in the project of Glasgow in Motion:

By 2030, over 90% of the UK population will live in urban areas. It’s more important than ever to understand how we live, work, and travel in our cities. Imagine you could know the most popular cycling route to work, the quality of air on your journey, or how pedestrians respond to weather. Through Glasgow in Motion, you can view and interact with data through time, to better understand movement and other factors that affect Glasgow residents every day.

It is a great project which returns the collected data to the use of citizens after anonymizing it. The interactive map shows busy and popular routes for walking, running and cycling. The range of data presented goes back to 2013 and the mst recent data is from 2016.
