Everyday I need to take the path trains. There is no internet connection in the train station so I can not know when the train will come. This is really annoying to me. My old solution is take a picture of the brochure below and save it in my Iphone.
But a photo is not cool enough in ITP, right? So I'm thinking about make it a offline realtime animation that can show me where are all the trains and how they are moving on their lines.
Then I found the open data of this brochure on the official site of the path train, and they are data sheets in .txt files connecting with each other. But it is easy to translate these files to excel files.
