Tweeting through the way- Dhriti Kimothi

Eric Fischer is a data mapping expert and software developer who has been working on data visualization projects over the years. He is the creator of the Geotaggers’ World Atlas.

This map by Eric Fischer plots routes which are heavily used in San Francisco near bay area.  Fischer collected this data with the help of geotagged tweets. In the map, volume of tweets is directly proportional to the density of traffic which is indicated by thickness of lines at that particular position. With help of this map it is easy to jot down tracks which cater a large traffic and accordingly ameliorate existing or create new routes to the traffic conditions of that area.
