Mapping Location Information from Flickr and Twitter

Eric Fisher, a digital cartographer has created a series of maps that shows the locations of people when they upload a message or a photo on Twitter and Flickr. This displays the density of certain areas and the distribution of resources. The purpose of these maps is to make inferences on how people live and the connection to one another that we have today. As the perspective of a city planner, Eric Fisher says these maps are both positive and negative. This data is successful in that it depicts where and what people are responding to but negative in that being able to see where people are losing interest. To view the full article click here.
