Visualising and Reliving my Moves

The other day Steve highlighted an site he’d found called Move-O-Scope which takes the data from an app we both love called Moves.

Moves is an activity tracker – Move-O-Scope is a fabulous way to visualise and explore the information stored.

Once I’d connected Move-O-Scope to my data it got me thinking about all sorts of things that had happened in the last 94 weeks.

It got me thinking about a few days on the Northumbria coast exploring Lindisfarne and the Farne Islands:

Alnwick Moves

There’s a set of hills that I’m trying to climb and I wondered how my progress so far would look:

Wainwright Moves

A lot of effort was expended to make some of those green squiggles.

Not surprisingly there’s a much higher level of movement around my home town:

Preston Moves

The blue cycle line around the outside is a local cycle track that encircles the town known as The Guild Wheel.

The big squiggle in the top right corner represents my regular morning walks.

Zooming in you can see that I like to vary things quite a bit:

Home Moves

For those of you who know the area, you’ll also notice that I don’t spend much time walking around the local supermarket (which is the tiny squiggle on the left).

I could spend hours doing this kind of thing, I find it fascinating what we now record about ourselves and what it says about our lives.

I’m going to finish with an image that shows my moves across the whole of the UK in the last 94 weeks which covers North, South, East and West but still so much more to see:
