This map shows a day of ‘Human’ activity across the world


Human activity map

Human – the activity tracking app, has released an interesting map showing location of its users in a few major cities around the world for. The visualisation captures all sorts of activities including walking, running, cycling, taking a bus or even a furry over 24h at the beginning of March 2016. It is a cool project but the map itself has a couple of constrains e.g. you cannot zoom in closely enough to see any details.

If you’d like to analyse the data in more details I recommend you to look at other similar projects we’ve covered. The first one is a result of a cooperation between RunKeeper app and Mapbox, another one is a map created by Strava showing a cool global heatmap of sport activities.

Looking at all this projects makes me realise just how much of our location data we share with the world each day… Amazing and scary at the same time…
