mySociety has a number of interesting and colourful time travel maps - maps that indicate how long it takes to trasvel from one point to another. Using publicly accessbile data and with the support of the U. K.’s Department of Transport, Chris Lightfoot and Tom Steinberg calculated travel times for all of the Great Britain to Edinburgh and Cambridge. Other maps look closer at the local Cambridge area and the Greater London area. One map compares travel times between rail and road travel (but doesn’t take into consideration traffic slowdowns on either mode of transportation). Interestingly, it takes about the same amount of time to travel to the north of Scotland from either Edinburgh or Cambridge.

By way of Boing Boing.
