For this assignment, I am thinking about using visualization to analysis students’ pedestrian flow at some typical routes in University of Sheffield campus. As a part of my project, a flow visualization will be shown to see how busy one walking road will be in our campus, thus further proposals may come up to resolve these potential issues in terms of campus transportation.

Firstly, a collection of students GPS tracking dataset are used to describe the way they used to go as much as possible before drawing all of them out. Then using some visual strategies like translucency overlay to highlight “intensive” points. Some further thinking of this idea could be that when click at some place, it will show the distance and walking time or from the point location to some of the campus buildings.
