Using Python to interactively map travel

Last Updated: Jan 28, 2018 < 1 min read — Tags: projects python travel


I did a lot of driving in 2017, so much so that I thought it'd be nice to chart it all out interactively in a video. Thus, Mappr was born. It is a Python program which parses city data and Google location history files (in JSON), interpolates data point between flights and train rides, projects the data points onto a Mercator map, and then renders the data into a MPEG-4 video frame by frame.
