HubCab/Exploring New York City taxi trails

MIT Senseable Lab uses urban databases to discover patterns hidden under urban behaviors.   In HubCab they target taxicab services as a way to understand the linkages between our travel habits and the places we travel to and from most often. The map shows exactly how – and when – taxis picked up or dropped off individuals, hereby highlighting particular zones of condensed pickup and drop-off activities during specific times of day.
