MetroMap utilizes the WMATA Developer API, a free tool that can be used to poll for information about the DC metro system. The MetroMap software, written in Python, grabs the live train positions once every 10 seconds and displays the data on a custom LED display. The display is laser cut in semi-transparent tinted acryllic, and the LEDs are colored according to their train lines for a very mesmerizing retro look.
The code is open source, check it out at our github page. Setup/User guides are available there too.
