To road test the release of the new geometry styling controls in Google Fusion Tables, I threw together a live visualisation of London Cycle Hire Rank availability. Using the Ruby Fusion Tables gem it sips data from the Boris Bikes API, and is basically a total rip off of homage to Oliver O’Brien’s (excellent) original visualisation.

Aside from the speed of development, the best thing about this version is: you don’t need a server.
