The densely populated yet beautiful HubCab [hubcab.org] by MIT Senseable Lab is an interactive map that captures the more than 170 million unique taxi trips that were made by around 13,500 taxi cabs within the City of New York in 2011.

The map shows exactly how - and when - taxis picked up or dropped off individuals, hereby highlighting particular zones of condensed pickup and drop-off activities during specific times of day.

The map lead to the development of the concept of "shareability networks", which allows for the efficient modeling and optimization of the trip-sharing opportunities. The according sharing benefits consider the total fare fare savings to passengers, the distance savings in travelled miles, and the CO2 emission savings in kg of CO2 that result from potentially shared trips.
