"Google Earth for Philadelphia" with open source and open transit data.
Live demo: http://www.openphillyglobe.org/
Interactively visualize SEPTA routes and pedestrian counts. Middle-mouse button drag to tilt the view. More transit layers to come in the future.
Real-Time SEPTA locations and average weekday pedestrian activity at Philadelphia street corners in August 2013.
There is a great open-data movement in Philadelphia, but there is not a one-stop viewer for the heterogeneous datasets. OpenPhillyGlobe is an open-source web-based 3D globe for visualizing Philly's open data with an initial focus on simultaneously visualizing multiple transit layers.
OpenPhillyGlobe is developed for the Apps for Philly Transit 2013 Hackathon by @abwood and @pjcozzi with special thanks to @matt_amato.
