Users of public transit have a very different view of the city than
car-bound folks. For a driver, the city is more-or-less static – the
time it takes to cross the city will stay more or less constant. To a
transit rider, the city is a constantly shifting landscape. A short
trip one moment becomes a long wait the moment you miss a train. An
express train in the morning may become a lethargic slog midday.
Displaying the time-dependent world as seen by a transit rider is a
challenge to cartographers, who must find a way to display
four-dimensional, time-varying data on a two-dimensional canvas.
We’ll take a look at different ways that mapmakers have attempted to
squeeze all sorts of four-dimensional data onto maps, from the
oscillations of transit systems to the shifting landscape of relative
distances within a city throughout the day, from the movements of
armies in battle to the dance of a collegiate housing shuffle.
