Interactive map shows the bike sharing usage of StadtRAD, the bike sharing system in Hamburg, Germany. The data is available on the open data platform from Deutsche Bahn, the public railway company in Germany. The last new StadtRAD station was put into operation in May 2016, that is why I have chosen to display the usage of June 2016. The brighter the lines, the more bikes have been cycled along that street. From data processing and spatial analysis to visualization the whole project was done in R. I have used the leaflet and shiny package to display the data interactively. The bikes themselves don’t have GPS, so the routes are estimated on a shortest route basis using the awesome cyclestreets API.
