We love getting around and exploring our favorite cities on two wheels. Even more, we love visualizing data sets of all shapes and sizes. That’s why we partnered with Foursquare designer, Zack Davenport, to tell the story of Citi Bike, New York City’s first-ever bicycle share program through data visualization.

Since our launch three months ago, we’ve been creating new maps for cities in the U.S. and abroad. Stay tuned for more—Brooklyn is the first of many.

In the meantime, pedal happy and HELLO Brooklyn!

We’ve launched! Our first product—Etch Map No. 1—visualizes your Foursquare check-ins on printed Manhattan, Portland, and San Francisco city maps. Because your check-in history is unique, no two Etch Maps are ever the same. And, with Etch, you can further personalize your map by applying color and marking places that are meaningful to you.

Etch was founded with a singular purpose: to create fine data products. As we look to offer additional cities, data visualizations, and, integrate other services, our purpose has enumerated: create fine data products that 1) unlock the value of our personal data, 2) visualize our personal data to create meaning and provide insight into our behavior, and 3) present our personal data in legible, beautiful forms.

Go ahead and check-in to your favorite coffee shop, bike your favorite routes, and count your steps. We’ll be crafting products that visualize your personal data to preserve, admire, and share with others.

We are Etch, @jeremyweikel and @michaelryap, makers of fine data products.

We are currently beta testing a service that visualizes your Foursquare check-ins on beautifully printed Manhattan, Portland, and San Francisco city maps.

If you self-quantify and delight in data visualizations, reductionist aesthetics, and finely-printed matter, follow us and sign up for early access and occasional launch updates by email on our website.
