Phasing High Speed Rail

Again from the Regional Plan Association comes this phasing map of high speed train networks in the United States and Canada towards 2050. The tool animates the extensions of the train network between cities, showing where the train tracks might originate from and where they might reach to. Different colours used for each phase bring out information about how the regional network would be constructed. The use of a light grey background helps to emphasize the rail networks. By rolling the mouse over certain regions, information about the GDP and population of the region update. The tool was created using Flash and JavaScript.
