Are there networks in maps? Shifted Maps visualizes personal movement data as a network of map extracts showing visited places. The geographic map dissolves and creates a flexible network layout, which reveals unique movement structures based on geographic positions, travel time or travel frequency.
Shifted Maps combines map and network in a unique way. As a result the network can be arrangend in different layouts while keeping a geographic reference to the places through the map extracts.
During the design process we did a range of visual experiments to explore potentials and limits of modulated maps.
