bike geolocation with Ruby and RMagick

I had a pleasant surprise today, Thibaut mailed me about his use of the Rufus::Scheduler in his Paris bike geolocation application, for calling his image generation code every twenty minutes.

Read more about how Thibaut leverages Hpricot and RMagick in his post entitled Data Visualization with Ruby and RMagick – Where Are Those Bikes ?

(Seems like I’m using geolocation quite liberally, are those bikes internet devices ? No the docking stations are, they feed their info about bikes availability to their center, which then provides the information via a website)
