Social Heat Map shows Twitter activity around Boston
The Social Heat Map builds a database of more than 250,000 venues, 500,000 restaurants and 1.4 million event listings. The social heat map then mines Twitter and other social media outlets for information about the venues, restaurants and listings and plots them on a map. A visualization layer is applied that shows the most active areas within the defined area. The venues that show the greatest activity in the social networks glow red with activity. You can search by keyword to see activity, click on an area for a sample of the tweets during that time period, filter by various categories, and click on a venue for event information. Social map is powered by Eviesays.
