Our Story

Based on patented data visualization research, Traffigram utilizes pre-attentive processing to allow immediate perception of multiple travel times at once.


Traffigram started when company co-founder and data scientist Dr. Cecilia Aragon found traditional maps based on distance to be unhelpful when trying to make choices based on travel time. She had the idea that maps could be transformed to show travel time instead of distance. As a professor of the University of Washington, she received two patents on this innovative technology. Today, the Traffigram team is bringing this revolutionary technology to the world.
