Just sharing stuff…
Here, I show the visualization of hypothetical taxi trips I created (from data generation to viz). The visualization was mostly coded by Ed, which I revised a bit (mostly for the style). All the points (origin and destination) are, of course, arbitrary. The trips were all randomly generated, in both space (from NAIA Terminal 2 to some hotel/hostel/apartment in Metro Manila) and time.
On the synthetic data generation, below I share the steps I took. I wrote all necessary scripts in Python.
The visualization is inspired by ImageWork’s NYC holiday taxi viz, which was inspired by Chris Wong’s NYC Taxis: A Day in the Life. Both have provided their code (at least part of them) for those who are interested in implementing the same viz. Ed and I studied their implementations.
