The Twitter Hills of San Francisco
There has been some beautiful visualisations of Twitter data lately. Twitter has now released a few more beautiful visualisations that present Twitter data as topographical maps.
The Topography of Tweets presents Twitter usage as mountain ranges. The peaks represent the places most Tweets are sent from and the troughs show where the fewest Tweets have originated from. Currently there are three maps available (San Francisco, New York and Istanbul). Each map allows the user to change the style of the map tiles, including Stamen's pretty Water Color map style.
