Hi Cartos, 

 

I'm looking for a specific tool that can help me visualize tweets over a map. As a bad example, I would like to be able to search for, "Kanye's Baby" and get a density map showing the number of geolocated tweets including those keywords over a map of the US.

 

Does anyone know of a tool that can help me do this?

 

Thanks!

Tony

Thanks for the link. It works great, but wish it would also plot the tweets on the map for a more visual result. 

 

Have a great one!

Yeah, we all heard that one... It's like "Asking for a friend" ;)

 

Honestly, I'm interested in the result. Keep us posted.

This is the best tool I've been able to find so far: http://worldmap.harvard.edu/tweetmap/

 

I wish it had more historical data, but it does the trick for topics within the past month.

Mapbox has done something with Twitter

You could have to dig deeper, but it could help.

Thanks! Yeah, I love their work. I haven't jumped into the custom scripting yet, but I think that's where the natural progression is leading me. 

 

Time to get busy!
