Cool map Wednesday

Vision Zero is the attempt of some major cities to make streets a safer place by reducing fatalities to zero. It’s a bit simple but that is the main idea. You can view the one for New York City here. Toward this goal there are some very cool maps coming out of these plans as mapping technology plays a major factor. One such map is the vision zero map for NYC.

I love this map because it looks simple yet shows real-time traffic data, weather conditions, live traffic cameras and even summary statistics at the bottom to let you see what’s going on with all those little cars moving around against that 3D backdrop. It’s mesmerizing and one can stare at the map and not get a headache.

You can find out all about the map here and view the live map here.
