Cabspotting – Real time views of where the taxi’ at

Img413 575
Spotted on Waxy.org – Here’s another data visualizer for San Fran, real time tracking of cabs from The Exploratorium, Yellow Cab, and Stamen Design – “Cabspotting traces San Francisco’s taxi cabs as they travel throughout the Bay Area. The patterns traced by each cab create a living and always-changing map of city life. This map hints at economic, social, and cultural trends that are otherwise invisible. The Exploratorium has invited artists and researchers to use this information to reveal these “Invisible Dynamics.””Link.

Once there is enough data visualizers and we can overlay them all, I bet there will be a few freaky things discovered.

    I am a taxi driver in San Jose and I wish we had this down here. Google Ride Finder is nice. It covers San Francico, Oakland and down to San Jose.
