The city of Hamburg is making increasingly more traffic data publicly available. This opens up exciting new possibilities. Insights into how the city moves can be gained and new digital solutions are now possible. To gain an understanding of the new open data platform and its potentials, I build a little demo app. The map visually shows the usage of city bikes during the last week of July in 2020.
The areas in which city bike stations are located are shown in a transparent white colour. If one or more bikes are being returned or rented out the area glows red. The data is aggregated to 15 minutes.
This little demo app does not provide any real insights (yet), but it helped me to gain a better understanding of the new open data platform.
