Typical Traffic Graphs
For those of us trying to avoid traffic, a "congestion timeline" would be very valuable. Google already has a "Typical traffic" slider to illustrate which roads are usually the worst, but it doesn't show a timeline. Here's a user interface prototype I've made to illustrate this idea.
As the user scrolls and zooms to view different areas, the graphs should automatically update, with smooth* animations.
*Mathematically smooth; bezier curves or something of the sort. But also smooth as in "woah that was pretty cool."

Snapshot of ideas
I look forward to publishing more feature requests for Google Maps and mapping technologies in general. Here's a collapsed screenshot of my feature requests ( [fr] ) for Google Maps.
