Bay Area Bike Share Data Maps

Virot Chiraphadhanakul has created a neat mapped interface to explore Bay Area bike sharing data. The Bay Area Bike Share Data allows you to explore trip statistics on the Bay Area Bike Share network and the average availability of bikes at docking stations.

Bike Area Bike Share Data is split into five maps which allow you to visualize data in San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Jose. If you select a bike docking station on any of the maps you are presented with four options to explore 'trip stats', 'availability', 'bike routes' and 'nearby photos'. The data view for each of these choices is displayed in the map sidebar.

The map itself uses map tiles from Stamen. However what I really like in this map are the beautiful circular pop-up windows which appear when you click on a map marker. Not only are these really attractive pop-ups I also like the way that they are highlighted, while at the same time the map itself is muted.
