Coloring Transit GPS Tracks by Azimuth

January 26th, 2015

I’ve been spending today getting pretty seriously turned on by more than 400,000 transit GPS tracks colored according to their azimuth (measured from start and end points). Beside being pretty, it ends up being a stupendously good way to differentiate tracks which otherwise run quite close together.

Would anyone be interested in prints if I were to make some?

    These are pretty. What does it look like when you zoom out?

    So pretty! Have you thought about abandoning all this and just going into art? :P

    Just kidding, this is great stuff – keep up the good work!
