Mapping Netflix Rentals
I’m awfully impressed by the New York Times’s interactive map showing Netflix rental patterns, by neighbourhood, for a dozen U.S. cities. That’s an incredibly complex amount of data to display — especially when you consider that there’s a map for each of the top 100 movies — and could have led to a lot of clutter, but the map uses thumbnails for the cities and a slider (!) for the movie titles, and it works. Now we can see which movies are popular in which neighbourhoods. Via Here Be Dragons, Kottke and The Map Scroll.
