Robby MacDonell on One Month of Transportation Logging

January 10, 2012

Robby MacDonell doesn’t own a car, so he gets around on public transportation and on foot. He spent one month tracking his use of various modes of transportation, using the app MyTracks. In the video below, Robby talks about how he evaluated the different location-tracking tools, how he built his own custom interactive Google map, what metrics he tracked, and some really interesting, surprising things he learned. Great talk! (Filmed by the Seattle QS Show&Tell meetup group.)
