Description

Using the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission dataset, taxi pickups (red, on the left) and dropoffs (yellow, on the right), from Oct. 27 to Oct. 31, 2012, are plotted on the Stamen "toner-background" maps using the ggplot2 and ggmap R-packages. Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the evening of October 29. Sorry for the crappy labeling, this is the first time I've tried to learn R. The NYC TLC dataset, from 2008 to 2013, will be one of the automobile-related datasets that we will visualize at the Stanford Data-Driven Conference, Friday, Feb. 13, 2015 http://journalism.stanford.edu/datadriven-conf/
