Remapping Paris based on Travel Time/Carbon Footprint. This is a neat undertaking by MIT student Xiaoji Chen.

Chen’s maps redraw Paris based not on physical distance between points, but on the travel time between them for each mode of transport. In victories for the green travelers, getting through the city’s dense center was quickest on bicycle, followed by the metro system. Chen didn’t stop there: she then factored in the carbon footprint necessary to get from A to B.
