Behold the beauty of every NYC cab ride in a day mapped out

See the ebbs and flows of rush hour, and the JFK and LaGuardia hubs in action. It's the work of Brooklyn-based grad student Will Geary.

Check out this beautiful piece of data visualization, which maps out every yellow and green cab ride in real time on a given day in New York.

The map, NYC Taxi Trips, comes from Will Geary, a Brooklyn-based grad student at Columbia University’s data science department.

Geary said the data comes from just a randomly picked day, in this case Jan. 3, 2015.

Geary’s past work has included mapping out the city’s daycare deserts.
