Data & Map Essay
Created as a personal project, February 2020

Is your neighbourhood dominated by bus travellers or subway travellers? This project aims to show the major type of transport used by the workers in each street block, and how the behaviour behaves differently in each district. Another main point for this project is to investigate is how far the subway could spread from its backbone.

These maps could provide a cornerstone for understanding commute patterns of Hong Kong. It could also be used for simulating urban flows between Core Urban Area and new towns.
