Calgary Commute

I am a student of the University of Calgary and I drive to school most days. I also happen to live pretty far in SE Calgary so it can be a long commute during rush hour. This graphic illustrates a typical rush hour commute for me, which happened to take roughly an hour. Each photo was taken every few minutes, and the board is split up in accordance to the different roads. The bar graphs are tallies of cars that are shown in each photo, which help to demonstrate how traffic changes from one major road to the next.
