The script draws in Adobe Illustrator the number of thousands of passengers at metro stations. The diameter of the station depends on the number of passengers.

While I was making the legend, the idea arose to depict the total passenger flows along the lines and across all stations. The first thought, of course, was to write a list of lines and give numbers. But it seemed boring. therefore, I came up with such a “hamburger” from lines of the corresponding width.
