Google Think Quarterly

Visualising cycle hire activity in print

Google’s Think Quarterly showcases new ideas in technology.

For the launch issue we produced data analysis of London’s Barclays Cycle Hire scheme showing the busiest and least busy bike docking stations in London. This was produced by The Church of London as a pop-up map. We obtained data for 1.4 million cycle hire journeys through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Our lead designer Adrian Short was interviewed for the accompanying feature article about transport data in London, The Mobile Revolution (PDF).
