The video below shows how traffic in 8 different cities around the world moves around over the course of a day. It collects its data from Waze, an open, crowd-sourced traffic/navigation app downloadable on iOS and Android. It's a great way to develop an understanding of how people move around a city, and the congestion issues that larger cities face with regards to traffic flow and distribution. A great activity you could do with student would be to have them use the images to determine where people tend to work and/or live, and to have them hypothesise about what kinds activities may be occurring in different parts of cities around the world.
