Check out this new Capital Bikeshare visualization tool by Mobility Lab's own Michael Schade. Fun to just play around with, but would also be good to get feedback on what people like and where improvements could be made.

Paul,
Welcome to the forums - I saw the tool the other day and am impressed! I forwarded to jdantos who did a lot of number crunching (http://jdantos.wordpress.com/2012/01/17/capital-bikeshare-data-part-1/) on the CaBi data when they released that first batch back this time last year.

I put together a little heatmap (https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B0v9YWFV5v14MTAxMjM4Y2MtM2Q1Ny00ZjNmLWJlZ WEtYWRkZDI3MjdjMTI5)of the rider data at the same time and had wanted to expand and improve on it, but, alas, never got around to it.

That's a cool heatmap. I'm going to tweet it out.

Nice article on the tool by the Washington Post's Dr. Gridlock:
