Homeless heat makes a great story

A few days ago, BoingBoing exhibited a heat map of the homeless launched by Cartifact. Using the Los Angeles Police Department’s bi-weekly counts, the data is turned into a map that allows the story of Downtown’s street population to be told visually.

Chicago’s crime is already being tracked by Adrian Holovaty using Google Maps.

What other stories could be told this way? What stories are already being told this way?
