NYC Taxi GPS

Chris Whong got a hold of a lot of GPS data for NYC taxis, using the cleverest hack of all: He asked nicely.

Not sure what I want to do with this yet, but spend an evening putting the basics together, and drew this from a small subset of the taxi dropoff locations. I love how the slightly fuzzy data lines up with street locations, and looks like the skeletons of pressed leaves.

There’s also an impressive zoomable map with both pickup and dropoff data by @enf.
