Your Tweets and Photos as Beautiful Heat Maps

Photographer Eric Fischer has a fascination for cartography. In this latest See something or say something series of maps, Fischer investigates the spread of Twitter and Flick across the globe. He makes uses of geotag information to show the locations where Flickr photos were taken, these are the red dots. The blue dots show the location of tweets and the white dots indicate that both Flickr photos and tweets were found at that location.

Have a look Fischer’s beautiful data visualizations after the jump.
