We created a large-scale, animated installation that pulls from live train data to show the routes and performance of the Norfolk Southern train system. This animated visualization is bird’s eye view of their railway networks zooming in on trains that complete their routes and zooming out to give a large picture of the network status as a whole. Using length to show distance traveled, colors to indicate velocity, height of each route block to indicate volume transported and Train ID we were able to give Norfolk Southern a comprehensible visual of how their train system performed within the last 24 hours.

This installation lives in the lobby of Norfolk Southern’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
