Where do Chicagoans Take Bike Share Bikes?

Chicago’s bike share program, Divvy Bikes, recently released their cycling data as part of a contest to compellingly visualize all of the bike trips taken by their users in 2013. Although Gabriel Gaster and Aaron Wolf’s entry didnt win, their web app is pretty cool and fun to play with.

They created an interactive map of Voronoi polygons, each representing a bike share station. When one of these bike station’s polygons is hovered over or clicked on, the map visualizes where bikes from the station were taken in 2013.

The map is made with D3.js, Leaflet, and beautiful Stamen tiles. You can access it here.
