Glowing CGI Map Beautifies NYC's Public Transit Routes

Next time the MTA needs to redesign our bus and subway maps, they should take a few pointers from the tech wizards of 422 South. The visual effects and animation company created a brilliant glowing map of New York City's public transportation routes for the new PBS series America Revealed, a show that sets out to visualize the invisible networks of communication and transportation that connect us. Manhattan is streaked with neon blue bus lines and bright green, red, and purple commuter rail lines, and the rivers are dotted with orange ferries.

This image shows the combine routes of all the Domino's pizza delivery guys in one night, which begs the question, why are so many people ordering from Domino's when this is New York City, land of amazing pizza?! For the nitty-gritty details on how 422 South works their techy magic, head over to the Creator's Project.
