All trips to that station are displayed in the upper row and all trips from that station in the lower row. The trails are rendered in what we call a firefly style with the current position shown as the brightest and the previous ones fading, resembling how a moving light source appears in a long exposure photo.

Riding a bike is largely independent of other traffic and unaffected by road congestion, and has health and environmental benefits. At the bottom of the dashboard, an interactive time slider shows the current time, and allows visitors to select any time of day directly.

In , following German reunification , Frederick's casket was interred in the terrace of the vineyard of Sanssouci — in the still existing crypt he had built there — after dark, without pomp, in accordance with his will. Tracing urban movements accentuates different urban structures, and contrasts grid-plan cities like New York with historically grown cities such as Berlin.
