I wish there was a way to correlate ambient
street noise to stress-related health problems in sectors of the city.

A Day in the Life of a New York City Taxi
Great visualization! I like Steve's environmental
layer suggestion (my background is air pollution control / air quality)... a
- Using Google traffic data (is it easily
accessible?) to see the percentage of time a random taxi's estimated route
is in a given traffic density (green, yellow, red)
- Distinguish b/w type of vehicle (is it
possible to know whether it is hybrid/conventional and make/model?) to
then estimate tailpipe emissions over the course of the day and route (I
can help with this if needed)
- Air sensors mounted on taxis and vehicles
is inevitable in my opinion, and that's when things will get really interesting

I'm excited to share this
little side project that I've been working on with the FOIL'd NYC
taxi data. It
offers a glimpse into a single 24 hour period, for a single taxi, and tallies
up fares, taxes, and passengers.
I've already seen some interesting
things, such as unexpected gaps during prime service hours for some taxis
(why? Long lunch breaks? Shift Change?) as well as some
pretty big variance in daily earnings.
I hope you like it! Blog
post coming on the tech recipe, there's a lot going on under the hood.
