Commuting is an important part of everyday life. Understanding the walk-ability and accessibility of any area is a necessity for everyday commuters. I was inspired by functionalities that GIS can give us to develop an application that shows the travel time (isochrones) for different modalities as well as accident hotspots for Mexico City.
What it does
It is an interactive map that shows the accident spots and helps commuters to have and estimate of their travel time as well as the shortest path between source and target.
How I built it
I used leaflet web mapping library and provide data as GeoJSON. I also used route360 library for network analysis.
Challenges I ran into
Using and integrating route360 into my application was the biggest challenge.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
This is the first program I have developed with network analysis and travel time analysis and I hope I can improve it for further functionalities.
What I learned
I learned a little bit about the structure of Mexico City. I also learned lots of programming tips and tricks during the development.
What's next for Mexico City Travel Time Application
I hope I will be able to add more network functionalities to the program.
