Using data provided by the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission, Sense Networks has put together the CabSense mobile app that visualizes taxi pickups by location and frequency. Plotting millions of GPS data points onto a heat map, CabSense directs users to more efficient spots for hailing cabs. With this data, NYT Interactive has developed a web-based tool that displays the data along a week-long timeline; by dragging a slider to move hour-by-hour, users can get a sense of what parts of the city are hotspots at different times of the day and week.
