I've always thought of maps as art. I remember as a kid waiting for my grandfather to open up the National Geographic and hope there was a foldout that I could escape with.

www.openstreetmap.org has a great idea. They are useing real life GPS data to document our travel patterns.

If they could somehow add a color code to indicate the average speed at different times of the day, we might be able to get to work a little faster(sleep more)!

and its open source!!!

check out this map!
