Twitter traffic as contoured landscape


There’s a piece over at the Londonist which has alerted us to this brilliant map.

Created by Fabian Neuhaus, at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, it shows London Twitter traffic as a contoured landscape.

It’s really cool stuff, and we especially like the detail of renaming London’s zones to reflect that they’re now peaks and valleys – Deptford Tor being a particular favourite.

Nauhaus is creating some fantastic stuff on his UrbanTick blog, which is well worth a few minutes of your time, if this Twitter map has got you all a bit excited.
