New City Landscape - Denver


Denver is with a population of some 600'000 only the 24th biggest city in the US. However, the New City Landscape map generated from one week of tweets send within a 30km radius around the city centre draws out the features really nicely. There is varying activity across the focus area with a main peak over Downtown Denver. Some additional features like the airport draw out nicely.
As usual the green areas and parks are generally empty of tweets. There is however one example in Denver where people have tweeted quit a bit, the denver Standley Lake Peak was a sort of surprise. Can be found on the map towards the top eft, just below the Rocky Mountain Airport Plains.

I am presenting some of the twitter work today at the GSA Annual Meeting 2010 in Denver. It is a session on community remote sensing organised by Suzanne Metlay and William Gail as of GSA Geoinformatics Division; GSA Geoscience Education Division; GSA Geology and Society Division; Secure World Foundation.

As usual the maps are also in the tweetography flickr set together with al the previously published maps.
