How do you turn your pizza delivery bike into a TRON light cycle? Simple: slap a GPS tracker on the back, run your delivery routes, then add the light ribbons in later. Do that with enough bicycles, and you get the beautiful view of nighttime delivery routes featured here.

These luminescent GPS trails show the routes taken by pizza delivery riders on a typical Friday night in Manhattan. This image, along with the video featured below, is just one of many created for PBS's America Revealed — an ambitious, data visualization-inspired project, created to illustrate the country's transportation, energy, and communication infrastructures. You'll find tons more images and video over at America Revealed.
