[Video] Cockfighter – The Kill Devil Hills

This video is an analytical model based on the GPS data from ten thousand taxi trips over the course of 24 hours. Using the Google Maps API the creators, Tom McKeogh, Eliza Montgomery and Juan F Saldarriaga, were able to create a pretty awesome visulisation based on the taxi traffic as it moved around Manhattan.

Fun stuff.

[Infographic] Romance on the Go

Romance Survey

Click to View

Just in time for Valentines Day, Hotels.com have released an interesting infographic based on a survey to identify what people considered to be their ideal romantic weekend. What I found particularly intriguing is that exploring a new city was so popular amongst the 18-29 age range, whereas spending a night in hotel scored so low in the same age range. For the Millenials it’s romance-is-on-the-go.

What’s your perfect romantic weekend?
