Mapping the Brisbane G20 Summit
The Social Media Research Group at the Queensland University of Technology are mapping the social media activity surrounding this weekend's G20 Summit in Brisbane. The G20 Hypometer Map also shows the location of restricted and declared areas in the city.
Geo-tagged Tweets sent from within Brisbane are displayed on the map with circular map markers. You can select individual markers on the map to read the individual Twitter messages. You can also select the 'Intensity Map' link to view a heat-map of G20 related social media activity in the city and the 'Time Map' link to view an animation of the Twitter messages sent over time.
