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.

Diagram 1: Bar graphs illustrate traffic data per weekday, and per hour given the selected day.

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."

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.
