Mapping software charts runners’ routes

Want to see where people run in Atlanta? Check out this purple spider web of a map. Nathan Yau at FlowingData has charted the running patterns of 22 major cities, including Atlanta and seventeen others in the U.S. He used information from the exercise-tracking app, RunKeeper.

The information only charts data from runners who actually use the app, but it’s probably a pretty good representation. No surprise, but people seem to like running in parks and near water.
