sea transport network maersk

Sea Transport Network is a visualization of paths taken by Maersk vessels in 2011.

Hundreds of ships and half a million of GPS data points revealing day by day a complex mesh of paths and connections. Sea Transport Network is a initial exploration leading to better understanding of the data and aiding design of data driven tools and interfaces crafted together with team at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.

All the paths at once. It's interesting how the shapes of continents are noticable and how easy is to spot congestion points.
