In the above example, you can see the first driver picks up a passenger in a blue region, and drops them off in a green region. They stay in the green region to pick up the next passenger, before returning back to the blue region. The second vehicle completes two trips in the purple region, picks up a third passenger in the purple region, and then delivers him to the green region.
By visualizing the schedule using these geographical colors (heatmaps), it is easy for a dispatcher to see if a vehicle or driver is being used inefficiently, or where a pending trip could be scheduled to. Read more about using heatmaps at DispatchBot Academy.
