Eric Fischer’s Twitter and Flickr Maps

Eric Ficher is a self-proclaimed “geek of maps, data visualization, failed transportation plans of the past, history of technology, computers, pedestrianism, and misspelled street signs.” He mines Flickr photographs, Tweeter, and the U.S. Census then plots the data and geotags using colored dots on maps using a computer program that he wrote. The resulting patterns yield a beautiful and bountiful array information.

Check out his photo-stream on Flickr.
