The Heartbeat of City

Cities are living, breathing animals with a pulse.

Each day, traffic flow swells and contracts through the major arteries of a city. The blood that runs through these vessels is teeming with cells of life that do work in the heart of the city to keep it alive and bustling.

In Orlando, FL, U.S., the city center is imbued with life from the two major highways that cut through its heart.

The data for this visualization was obtained from the freely available repository of traffic sensor data provided by the FL Department of Transportation. Below is an interactive map of all the sensor locations in Florida.
