Progress on the maps project! Briefly, the goal of this project is to create a heatmap of commute times to/from different parts of LA. 

When I started working in Long Beach last year, I was considering moving to ease the commute– while at the same time, balancing Emma’s commute to UCLA. I’m putting this together to validate our decision to stay in West LA (actually, mainly for fun) by creating a heatmap of summed travel times to UCLA and Long beach from different locations in LA. I’d like to expand it to fix UCLA as one destination, home as the origin, and all of LA as the second destination to determine the geographic areas I could work in with a reasonable commute.

This map is the first little test to heatmap travel time to UCLA.
