This Fun Interactive Map Shows When D.C. Is Awake

New, 1 comment

Anyone curious to know when their neighborhood is essentially dead to the world ought to get a good idea looking at this interactive map. MIT Media Lab's You Are Here project found the opening hours of D.C.'s businesses using the Factual Places API and have visualized a way to see, quite literally, when D.C. lights up and when it goes dark. Toward the middle of the day, it's actually possible not just to see geographical landmarks like Rock Creek Park, but also the main commercial streets like Wisconsin Avenue and Connecticut Avenue. Also, note how H Street NE comes alive at night. Take a look at a day's worth of screen shots after the jump.
