Supporting Seattle’s Economic Growth
This project was a partnership with the Urban Freight Lab at the University of Washington. The Urban Freight Lab (UFL) aims to affect policy and to support approaches to the design and planning of more livable environments. The goal of this project was to create partnerships with industries in Seattle to plan and test pilot new delivery systems, develop networks of load and unload zones.
What is the
of the City?
Below are the graphs from all traffic in and out of the City of Seattle for just the intersection at 4th & Holgate. The intersection is located in the southern part of the city. On the graphs, the data above represents the incoming vehicles and the data below represents the outbound vehicles. This data was collected by UFL. My team’s job was to clean up and visualize the data for the whole week. Below the graph section, there is an example of some of the data sheets we were working out of.
We started with troves of data from UFL. They gave us the number of all vehicles coming in and coming out of the city center. Each vehicle was split into different categories based on use, size, and amount of axels. UFL recorded this data for seven days every 15 minutes.
We were tasked with visualizing the complete data set! We wanted the audience to be broad and informational. Overall, we wanted it to be easy to digest all of this information. We also wanted people viewing the data to be able to draw their own conclusions about the traffic in Seattle.
