Mid-distance commuters in Uruguay
Pendular movements from census data
This map is part of a series of maps and spatial data analysis of the daily commutes in my home country, Uruguay, which I have done for a research project related to decentralization and functional areas.
Every line represents a commuter according to the national census data, which is to say people who travel relatively long distances in order to get to their jobs or education facilities, on a daily basis (what geographers call "pendular movements").
As expected, you’ll see a cluster of intense daily commutes in the southern coastal zone, close to the capital city, the biggest urban center of the country.
