This map shows the residential distribution of staff working for an organisation in Hong Kong. This organisation has two offices, represented in square. The yellow dots are the locations of staff who work in "yellow square" office and light green dots in "light green square" office.

Light blue circle represents the 2Km buffer zone from the centre of work location, and orange border circle represents 5Km zone. This map shows that a majority (69%) of staff live within 5Km of their work location.

Interestingly, some studies have suggested that there could be positive or negative association between commuting and one's health.
