Tom MacWright - running map tying route to heartrate
via Quantified Self
“I was interested in visualizing not only where these runs were taking place, but also, at what time of day. I decided to create a timelapse video, displaying each individual route at the time of day it took place. Moreover, I elected to use a map of New York City, but rather, let the running data generate a map of New York City as the runners move throughout the city. Paths, streets, and bridges all start to emerge as the day goes on and more runners move through the city.”

Using the software the participants were able to play with the mapping and adjust the composition of their run which was then outputted as a high resolution print for them to take home. We also worked with the Innovation Lab at Nike to laser etch the runner’s name, the distance they ran and their run path onto a custom fabricated shoe box, which contained a pair of the ‘City Pack’ shoes from their city of origin.
