Taxi NYC!

There's a really cool map visualisation of the density of cabs in New York at any given time of the week over at: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/04/02/nyregion/taxi-map.html .

How did they get all this info? Apparently the city has fitted all its cabs with GPS equipment. Rather neat! Of course, someone has released an iPhone and Android application to take advantage of this and tell you where you're best off hailing a cab. It's called Cabsense.

Can we do this for London please TfL?
