One of the toughest decisions in life usually occurs on a Saturday night, deciding which takeaway option is going to make or break your evening. Moreso if you live in a major city like London, the number of options can be overwhelming. So we asked ourselves, where is the worst place to live if you’re a little indecisive when choosing dinner options? This map has analysed a 15 minute ‘delivery time’ from each takeaway restaurant in London, then calculated how many different options each area will have access to. For certain areas, having over 500 takeaway options could lead to a few disagreements around the increasingly hungry dinner table.
The map has an eye catching red-orange-yellow colour ramp to mark the ‘hotspot’ areas, reflecting the hottest part of a fire being yellow. The underlying analysis counts how many takeaway drivetimes overlap on any given point, then churns out the figure.
