World map of Flickr and Twitter locations

Newer Older

Red dots are locations of Flickr pictures. Blue dots are locations of Twitter tweets. White dots are locations that have been posted to both.

Larger European and North American excerpts.

Something strange is going on off the east coast of Japan. Are these Tokyo Datum locations instead of WGS84?

    I'm a little surprised you don't have a map of the middle east due to the widespread use of twitter and Flickr to mobilize the Arab revolutions.

    I didn't do one just because it didn't have such a large, visible concentration of locations, but you're right, I should make a regional map for there.

    These are truly fantastic, very intriguing. Would you please consider publishing a map of South Africa, and if there is sufficient data, maps of both the cities of Cape Town and Johannesburg?

    I suspect that the first thing Arab revolutionaries would do is turn off geolocation, however, it looks there is some data there. It would be very interesting to see a map of Iran.

    are you going to make these available in a poster form or such?

  8. Eric Fischer 45 months ago | reply

    Sorry, I don't have enough data for any South African cities to make good maps there.

    The Europe and North America ones might be detailed enough to make good posters. I'll have to look into that.

    Quick question for you – what is the length of time used to collect the data for this map – a single day, a month?

  17. Eric Fischer 18 months ago | reply

    This one has two months of tweets and a few years of photos.
