San Francisco Tweetography: Twitter Landscapes

Our geo-located twitter data mined from San Francisco has now been processed to create a new look at the city.

Processed by Fabian Neuhaus, a PhD student here at CASA, University College London, the new city twitter topography creates a unique new media landscape. The data is mined via our ‘Tweet-O-Meter’ system (soon to be seen in physical form in the British Library) which collects all geo-located tweets within a 30km radius of world cities.

You can view a full screen Google Maps style version of San Francisco over at Urban Tick as well as the previous maps of London, New York, Munich, Paris and Moscow.
