Taxi Trails uses live GPS data from taxi journeys to show where the locals in Stockholm actually go. If you want to know where posh people hang out at the weekend, or where hipsters spend their weekday evenings, it’s all here.
The map shows popular areas by heat, so it’s also easy to find the not-so-obvious destinations, as well as info on restaurants and other attractions.

We had cash prizes, but also the chance to have your design placed in Knowledge is Beautiful (Amazon US | UK), David McCandless’s new book.
Here’s a reminder of the prizes:
