16 Maps of Barcelona at Night
atNight is a series of maps exploring the night time landscape of Barcelona. Using data gathered from social media, picture sharing websites and different modes of transport the maps explore how Barcelona at night differs from the Barcelona of the day.
All the maps are static maps which have been made interactive using the Leaflet.js mapping platform. You can browse through each of the 16 maps using the map menu. Beneath the map is an explanation of the data used in each of the 16 views of Barcelona.
The maps use a variety of data sets to explore the landscape of Barcelona's night-life. These include data comparing taxis and bike movements during the night with their movements during the day. Other maps explore the location of Flickr and Instagram photos taken at night with those taken during the day.
