Providence, RI: Storm Water Management Through Green Infrastructure

Providence, RI: Storm Water Management Through Green Infrastructure

Currently the City of Providence is unable to manage all of the rain it receives. Every year, stormwater carries an unhealthy amount of pollution into our waterways and causes flooding in our streets and basements. Much of Providence’s system of storm drains, catch basins and underground pipes hails back to the 19th century, when the city had far fewer buildings and much less pavement. Today, Providence has developed into a thriving city with around 180,000 inhabitants. As the city continues to grow, we need to search for new solutions that allow us to manage our stormwater while protecting our communities and environment.

King County, WA: 24 Hours of King County Metro

King County, WA: 24 Hours of King County Metro

This animation shows 24 hours of Metro activity, over 200 bus routes on more than 12,000 trips. In this animation every bus is on time. Each bus is represented by a black dot that moves between stops. The bus positions are computed every 6 seconds of real time, though the bus routes are approximated as straight lines between stops (faint grey dots).

I created this visualization of Metro activity to show how integral the bus system is to daily life in Seattle. Simply mapping the bus stops traces every major street and boundary in the city. The Metro system provides over 115,400,000 passenger trips per year.

Protected Intersections for Bicyclists

Protected bike lanes are the latest approach US cities are taking to help their residents get around by bike. But these protected lanes lose their buffer separation at intersections, reducing the comfort and safety for people riding.

Streetfilms: The Power of Bicycling (Get Psyched)

Streetfilms: The Power of Bicycling (Get Psyched)

This has been the worst winter of my adult life. And if you live most places in the United States you’d probably agree. Between the extreme below-average temperatures and the constant barrage of snowstorms, it’s made cycling outdoors a rough proposition – even for the intrepid.

To attempt to lift my spirits, I started browsing archived Streetfilms bike b-roll from all over the world, and I could feel my mood instantly change. We’ve certainly been lucky to shoot in great bicycle places in beautiful weather and that magic of bike love easily translates via the camera. So I thought maybe I should share some of that joy and get some of you to look forward to the Spring with this hasty assembled montage.

San Diego, CA: Midday Traffic Reorganized by Color

The source footage for this video is a 4-minute shot from the Washington Street bridge above State Route 163 in San Diego captured at 2:39pm Oct 1, 2013. My aim is to reveal the color palette and color preferences of contemporary San Diego drivers in addition to traffic patterns and volumes. There are no CG elements, these are all real cars that have been removed from one sample and reorganized.

Without a doubt 2013 has been a banner year for bike share in the United States with large systems implemented in New York City (Citibike) & Chicago (Divvy) and many others debuting (or expanding their size) in cites big and small. In fact, Citibike now boasts over 10 million bike miles travelled and is inching closer to 100,000 members!

Los Angeles: Dealing With Door-Zone Bike Lanes

This short video shows cyclist passing distances provided by the same Culver City bus operator for cyclists (a) on the left edge of a door-zone bike lane (DZBL) and (b) leaving the bike lane to control the right general travel lane. I am riding my 1978 Jack Taylor tandem here with my wife and our audible conversation is also relevant to what we are experiencing. – Gary Cziko on Vimeo
