Exploring urban data through New York City subway maps
Tunnel Vision NYC, a new app created by Bill Lindmeier as a thesis project at ITP / NYU, layers data from the MTA and U.S. Census Bureau on MTA subway maps. Simply point your phone at the map to see data visualizations of turnstile activity, rent prices, income and more.
Check out this video of a visualization of NYC’s transit system which was compiled through General Transit Feed Specification data and illustrates a day — from 4 A.M. to 4 A.M. — of transit operations.
Featured dataset: NYC Subway Entrances
We invite you to create and submit data visualizations from now until January 20th using the dataset on NYC Subway Entrances. You can click “menu” on the map below to download the data in CSV, JSON, PDF, RDF, RSS, XLS, XLSX, XML formats. You are welcome to use correlative data from other sources as well (e.g. the U.S. Census).
We challenge you to dive beneath the surface and look forward to seeing your submissions. We will post some of our favorites on the Tumblr.
