iSPOTS is a project that maps the dynamics of the wireless network on the MIT Campus in real-time. The Intensities map is very nice indeed.

Does the "Traces" one ever do anything if you don't login?

Just what I was thinking.

for context in the intensities, it is really helpful to understand what the different buildings are for...

Hmm... I tracked usage in my building ... and saw the pattern of my workday. Whoa... I was slacking on Saturday the 15th, and didn't show up until 1 in the afternoon.

(not that I'm not slacking even when I'm here, logged into the wireless and ... uh ... posting on Metafilter)

heh.. is that big red blob in whatzit's pic on the top right of his blue area the lunch truck grass on ames st?

neustile: the big red blob is actually 68, the yellow area just under it is 66. it doesn't seem that people get much work done near the food trucks themselves, which are at the NE corner of 68, and are totally dark.

[I'll admit, my outlining could have been improved though - my excuse: I did it in Paint!]
