Friday Night Flicks: Timemaps

Today’s little video was selected because next Sunday’s post will be the last one in the series about my map book, Finding A Way. Vincent Meertens explores a new type of mapping, based on travel times rather than distance. The animation shows a morphing map of the Netherlands, altered based on how long it takes to get from a particular location to every other place in the country.



I hope it doesn’t take you long to get where you are going this weekend.

  1. Of course, time is relative!!! Looks what happens to time when we get into our studio….it has almost nothing to do with what the clock is saying. Very much enjoyed seeing this and having the “data support” for this concept. Martha

      As long as the weather is even remotely co-operative, I live at bicycle speed. It sometimes takes a little longer to get places, but most short trips work out to be as quick as a car: fewer parking problems, the option of taking short cuts through parks. I was delighted to find a mapping system that shows the relativity of our lives in such an elegant manner. Glad you liked it too!
