Happy Monday! Uber just launched their new product “Movement”, a website that offers access to Uber’s traffic data! Looking back to 2016, Uber’s data visualization team published a blog post about Uber’s data platform, and how it powers the visualization layers on Uber’s business insight applications and business data exploration. And you may have seen MemSQL’s “Supercar Real-Time Geospatial Demo” that makes use of a dataset containing the details of 170 million real world taxi rides.
And now everybody can access Uber data. Everybody? Well not quite yet, but you can apply for the private beta access here
Talking about private beta: Dataviz-as-a-service-platform Reflect is looking for Redshift users to test their new data modeling features in preparation for public beta. Simply reply to this email and we’ll put you in touch.
Happy Monday!
