Andy Woodruff of the Cartogrammar blog spent 2009 tracking his movements. Woodruff mapped out his movements on a daily basis and categorized them by type of transport: foot, car, bike, train, and bus. The mapping was restricted to just the Cambridge, Massachusetts area so out-of-town trips are not recorded. Woodruff relied on memory and drafted the routes himself rather than compiling the data via a GPS. The result is a flash map that shows his daily travels. Click on the legend to only see travel by a specific mode of travel.
The end result allowed Woodruff to take a look at where and how he travels in a given year. He noted that he only used his bicycle four times in 2009 and needed to explore more of Boston.
