Square Payments in New Orleans during the Super Bowl

6th February 2013 @ 7:20 pm
At Square I've primarily been working on internal tools and explorations of potential new customer-facing features. This week it was nice to change focus and collaborate with Faryl Ury from our communications team to put together some maps and summary stats about the effect of the Super Bowl on Square payments in New Orleans.

Here's the main image, produced with TileMill from the good folks at MapBox:

Ritchie King did a great job summarising our explorations over on Quartz, the new-ish business blog from Atlantic Media. Lucky for Square, two of their obsessions are mobile web and digital money, so I imagine they'll be watching us closely!
