Maps that show time

How long is your commute?

The chances are, you answered in minutes rather than miles. That’s why we made Mapumental: intuituve, interactive maps that display public transport journey times between start points and destinations.

Transit-time maps, also known as isochrone maps, are not a new idea: there are examples dating back hundreds of years. But the online technologies behind Mapumental are new – and have unleashed a great many possibilities for all kinds of users.

Estate agents have used Mapumental to show househunters every property they could buy within a reasonable public transport commute from their workplace.

Civic planners and governments have used it to generate Public Transport Accessibility Maps, plotting how long it takes to reach essential services.

Insurers have used it to show how long it would take fire engines to reach any given postcode.
