This interactive map, from Dumpark, reveals the average number of hours
of direct sunlight received each day throughout Wellington City in New
The number of hours of direct sunlight is affected by topographical
features (such as hills) and physical objects (like buildings and
trees). To measure the number of hours of direct sunlight Dunpark used
data elevation models of Wellington City combined with building
footprint data of the city.
The Hours of Direct Sunlight

is a beautiful animated mapped visualization of bike trips on the Divvy
bike sharing network in Chicago. The map includes circular map
markers showing the position of bike docking stations and the option to

It also contains a date control which allows you to select the day’s
rides that you wish to see visualized and a time display informing you
of the time of day. Divvy Trips provides a great visualization of how
