kinda limited to what you can do geospatial wise on the limited info, really you need the trip lines between those points and matched against a database to aggregate about. so your streets representing the cumulative trips on that roadway.

Agreed! And I wouldn't be surprised if Uber is collecting that waypoint data as well - it's just not easily accessible right now. If it was, we could do something like this project, which used Citibike data (the maps are also made using Uber): http://toddwschneider.com/posts/a-tale-of-twenty-two-million-citi-bikes-analyzing-the-nyc-bike-share-system/. If you find a way to show this trip line data, please share!! Thanks for watching.
