Road segments

In the Data Explorer, you can visualize the data for road segments, coloring each segment based on another data property such as road type or traffic speed. If you change any property or time filters, this updates the road segment visualization.

You can filter the data property statistics to find trends in the line segment data; see Filtering your dataset for more details about how to apply filters.

Visualizing traffic flow

If you want to visualize the flow of traffic rather than data about the roads, use a traffic flow visualization instead; see Traffic (network) flow.

Visualizing tracks

If you want to visualize journeys rather than data about the roads, use a tracks visualization instead; see Tracks.

Example: Road segments colored by numeric average

For example, say you have some data about the traffic in Singapore, you might want to know:

Where are the measured traffic hotspots in Singapore, and how does that change day to day?

By combining a geometry layer for the road network with the average speed data, you can visualize the traffic hotspots. Using the animated time range visualization enables you to see the trends in distribution of traffic across days.

Example: Road segments colored by numeric total

For example, say you have some data about the traffic in Singapore, you might want to know:

Which roads accumulate the most measured pollutants during the morning rush hour?

By combining a geometry layer for the road network with the property breakdown that indicates pollution, you can visualize which parts of the road network have the greatest levels of pollution.
