Aaron Parecki was obsessed with mapping as a child. He grew up, discovered GPS, and logged 2.5 million data points over three years of living and moving to create an intimate, personal city map of Portland.
And that second photo?
“I recently found a stack of handwritten notepads from 3/29/1995 through 6/9/1997 where I logged the commutes to school,” Parecki writes. “I have complete logs for the entire 2 years of driving to school, including start time, end time, time traveled, who drove, and in what car.”
This could be an interesting data set to gather: invite students to log their commutes?
