Visualization: Jer Thorp’s “Just Landed”

Jer Thorp slurped up mentions of “Just landed in” or “Just arrived in” from Twitter, mapped the coordinates, and made an animated map in Processing that shows people popping around the world. The test render above shows the data pulled over the course of 4 hours. If that’s actually all the returned queries from the entirety of Twitter, I’m surprised there aren’t more. [via Waxy]

    Greetings Professor Falken.

    Strange game.

    The only way to win is not to play.

    How about a nice game of chess?
