New York Subway Maps Come Alive With Interactive Visualization App
Tunnel Vision is a smartphone app that adds interactivity to New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) maps. By pointing the phone’s camera at a subway or bus map, users can view real-time position data for transit vehicles along with overlays of U.S. Census data and turnstile activity at each station. The app, which requires no Internet connection and can be used inside subway stations, also shows estimated arrival times, which can be helpful when a station’s official timetable display is broken or absent.
