Yes, I made a (ridiculously inefficient) slippy heat map based on
cycle map apache logs for a given day/period. It was primarily done to
find areas people were looking for tiles but we didn't have them (ie:
the 404 responses), so we could add the areas to our render list. We
don't need that now because we cover everywhere :-)
