Cabspotting

The Exploratorium in San Francisco has done it again with the creation of Cabspotting, a project tracing the routes of taxi cabs in the Bay Area via GPS. This is an amazing site that lets you explore where in the city taxis go along with various other variables such as speed, distance, etc. It’s not so scientific that it’s not fun but I particularly like that it allows the viewer to draw his own opinion on what all the live diagrams mean.

I guess this still doesn’t solve the mystery of why people can’t hail taxi cabs in SF.
