Week 2 – Assignment

For this week’s assignment, I decided to use my own dataset about location information that I have tracked over the past year with Openpaths. There are almost 1,000 datapoints including coordinate and timecode showing where I have been at a certain moment.

As I live a completely different life between weekday and weekend like any other daddy, I planned to visualize one year of my path in this city, assuming there might be a significant difference in the place where I have been according to day.



I tried to merge Mapbox GL JS and D3.js as I consider a transition effect that changes the size of dots according to a selection between weekday and weekend.

Even though there was less difference between weekend and weekday than expected, it’s certain that my radius of living is even smaller at weekend. I guess the location data of a person can imply which phase the person is in of his/her life – I definitely in the less active phase in terms of locomotivity. If I continue to gather this location data, I will be able to demonstrate the changes in my lifestyle by comparing them yearly basis.
