Eric Fischer macht wieder Karten aus Geotags. Diesmal nimmt er sich Tweets einer Person und berechnet aus den Koordinaten den Weg, auf dem sich die Person theoretisch in der Stadt bewegt. Oben die Karte von Berlin.

Routing 30,000 randomly-chosen trips through the paths suggested by 10,000 randomly-chosen geotags. These are perhaps the most interesting routes between the endpoints of the trips, even if not necessarily the most likely.

"It is paths from one geotagged tweet to the next by the same person, routed along the most heavily geotagged path in between." In a comment on Flickr, he clarified, "Keep in mind this is trying to be a map of travel from locations to other locations, not of individual tweets. The individual tweets are just to guide the paths.
