The results from comparing different datasources can be represented in a number of ways. One way is to visualize the incident response from each cource, i.e. to create response charts (as shown) below, coloring cells according to the measured speed surrounding an identified incident area, spanning both road segments and time.
Incident response chart
Each row shows the speed measurements collected within a time interval, and each column represents a road segment before, under, or after the incident. Red cells have a speed lower than the speed normally measured in this cell, and green cells have a higher speed. The centered box marks the identified extent of the incident, both in tima and space.
