Cabspotting is a project which traces the taxi cabs of San Francisco as they travel the Bay Area. This a continuous map, where new patterns are traced by each cab every day. This map allows for some insight into what would be otherwise invisible as social, economic and cultural trends emerge.
Artists and designers are encouraged to use the data produced to create their own projects.
