Live map of the London Underground tells you where the trains are, aren't

Those red pins above may not look much like trains, but trust us when we say that they totally are. That screenshot was taken from the Live train map for the London Underground, a project of Matthew Somerville and part of London's Science Hack Day. In just a few hours Somerville whipped up this Javascript parser of the Greater London Authority's Train Predictions Service, a stream of every Underground train's location and destination. That info is laid atop Google Maps along with static locations of stations and, huzzah, instant, real-time Tube map! If you're reading this while waiting patiently for your own, non-trackable unit of public transportation to arrive, know that we share the sense of envy burning down deep within you.

[Thanks, Andrew]
