TrafficViz

TrafficViz aims to visualise traffic incidents from across the US and UK using tableau as the data visualisation platform

Project Description

This project is an interactive dashboard displaying traffic incidents from across the US and UK. The data is accessed from the Bing Traffic Incidents API and stored in a MongoDB database. Data is exported from MongoDB to the data visualisation application Tableau using the Simba Mongo ODBC converter. A range of graphical visualisations are employed in the dashboard including maps, bar charts and time plots. This result is a responsive dashboard that allows users to interact with and explore this data set.​
