This is the On Broadway Project presented by Moritz Stefaner.  He created this visualization project from activities of ordinary people in order to show the busy life of those who live and visit Broadway, Manhattan in New York. To do so, he monitored data such as number of twitter posts and taxi rides per day, and well as colors in the instagram posts. After gathering that data, he compressed his findings into the data layers that you see below:

What I love about Moritz’s project was that he essentially took the normal lives of people living on Broadway and compiled it into a visual product using his own algorithms or ones given to him by organizations that he had worked for. I was taken aback at how relevant the data was to ordinary people who may not necessarily be into statistics, but can enjoy this visual and even learn something from it.
