Bike Sharing: Gearing up for a Better World

Bike Sharing: Gearing up for a Better World

Looks at how bike sharing has being 1 of the biggest innovations to transportation, environment and culture in the last 10 years by showing its' the global density. To do this I created a global bike sharing density map using data from Google Maps. I used Java and Processing to design a custom application to generate the 2d data graphic. Then I turned it into a 3d object using paper, string, knife, scissors, and glue. You can see the "making of" photos at http://www.flickr.com/photos/56084752@N08/sets/72157626458769167/.
