We tend to start (things of unknown length) however it's easy, because we can't yet know where the end is, so you can't adjust for the unknown end. This influences our thinking so that we ...

It is difficult to compare the lengths of lines when they are branching out in different ...

Did you take a look at how Google maps shows their shortest path? The shortest path is highlighted with a strong color and the other options in a less prominent color (grey on Google maps). Also an indicator shows how long each path will take to reach the destination. When adding colors just make sure you choose colors and a thickness that will make ...
