The Jiepang Check-in map visualizes check-ins made on China's leading social network on 24th October 2012.
Jiepang is often called the Foursquare of China. As China's leading location based service it allows users to share their location data with friends and also to check-in to venues. The Jiepang Check-in map shows check-ins made on Jiepang in Beijing on one day.
The colors of the circles on the map represent the category of venue (dining, shopping, night-life etc). I assume the size of the circles represent the number of check-ins made at each venue.
