[Editor's note: I saw this album art CD cover at Starbucks last week. KCRW, the streaming public radio station out of California, puts out yearly live studio performance albums. This one features the likes of Dido, Rufus Wainwright, and Girls in Hawaii. The artists are arranged along subway lines with stations labeled with artist names. Not sure if there's a rhyme or reason to the layout, but the result is cool. ]

HeatMapAPI can be used over the Internet or as a .NET DLL that runs in a local environment and allows you to integrate heat map images into Google Maps or other GIS systems. In this post we’re going to use HeatMapAPI to visualize the density of recent Starbucks store closures. In a recent statement, Starbucks announced the closure of 600+ stores in the United States due to economic conditions.
