5FLOCK

The Objective:
Create a live data visualisation displaying the user locations of Twitter users within New York City using live trending data.
The Solution:
The search algorithm gathers the latest tweets in relation to New York City location-based trends from Twitter users specifying NYC as their location. 5Flock achieves this by looking for any Geo-Positional tagging information attached to the Tweet and if not present, scans the user’s profile lexicon to deduce matching New York City geographical strings. The interface visualises the borough location perspective of the last 50 tweets through a spatial tree/dendrogram animation and a tweet display of the users with the most followers.
