One Day In The Life A New York Taxi, Mapped

July 15, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

Previously, we posted a map that plotted every taxi trip made around New York in 2013. Now, Chris Whong has given us a tiny crisp slice of that mass blur of data. NYC Taxis: A Day In The Life, is an interactive map of the trips taken in one day in 2013 by a single yellow cab. The map allows you to zoom in, speed up or slow down the progression of time and gives you a handy guide to understanding the symbols Whong created. It’s a fascinating project for anyone who is curious about the hyperactive organism that is New York City transportation. Go, taxi, go.
